Qualified Tuition Reduction

The Qualified Tuition Reduction Program permits eligible employees to take advantage of educational opportunities at the University. Please review SPP 505, Employee-Reduced In-State Tuition, for additional information regarding eligibility and benefits.


Reduced in-state tuition is available to faculty and staff who are employed at least 50% within the state university system, their spouses and dependent children. You must be employed on the first day of the session to be eligible for employee reduced in-state tuition. At ASU, the Qualified Tuition Reduction Form must be submitted on or before the first day of a session to qualify for reduced tuition.

Institutional merit-based aid provided by the University will not exceed the value of stated resident tuition for each respective academic year when combined with the Qualified Tuition Reduction (QTR, a benefit for faculty and staff) or other tuition reduction programs (or waivers). Students offered multiple awards designated for base tuition, cannot receive more than 100% of base tuition.
