Tuition Assistance Program (TAP)

The Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) replaced the Tuition Remission and Reimbursement Program (TRR) effective November 1, 2004. This program was implemented with the Spring Semester 2005. TAP is an employee supplemental educational assistance program.

Special Withdrawal Exception

A number of changes have taken place over the last month related to COVID-19 with employees transitioning to remote working and learning which may have resulted in TAP participants withdrawing from their Spring 2020 course(s). The current USG policy requires that if an employee withdraws from an approved TAP course prior to its completion or after the institution’s withdrawal period, the employee will be ineligible to participate in TAP for the next academic semester. A decision has been made by USG leadership that for the Spring 2020 semester only, this eligibility requirement will be waived. Employees with a “W” should not be denied an application for Maymester or Summer Session. However, the condition of obtaining a grade of C or better to participate the next academic semester remains.
