The tuition fee waiver for an undergraduate taking courses is not taxable for employees or their dependents. Once a student has received a bachelor’s degree, any classes paid for by an employee tuition fee waiver must be taxed per the IRS regulations.

Current regulations state that any university employee who has at least a bachelor’s degree is exempt from tax on the first $5,250 of the tuition fee waiver value each year. Amounts exceeding $5,250 annually are taxable.

Kent State University will hold its annual Veterans Day Commemoration on Thursday, Nov. 8, at 11 a.m. at the Kent Student Center Kiva.
