Tuition Reimbursement

Employer or agency tuition reimbursement is a different process from third-party billing. If you will be reimbursed directly by your employer or sponsor, we won't set up a third-party contract, and you will remain responsible to cover due charges by the posted due date(s). Tuition reimbursement is not considered, by itself, sufficient resource to cover the balance due. 

Tuition reimbursement is an agreement between you and your employer/sponsoring agency, not between the University and the agency, so payment to the University is not guaranteed. For example, if payment is sent directly to you, there is no guarantee of payment to the University. Additionally, reimbursement is often dependent upon grades, in which case reimbursement to you is not guaranteed. In short, you will be responsible to make other arrangements to remain in good financial standing with the University. 

If your employer will pay UVA directly, please see the qualifications for third-party billing to determine if your situation is eligible.

Billing Statement: If a tuition or billing statement is needed for proof of charges, this can be obtained by accessing your term statement through UVAPay (or general account activity in SIS). If this form will not meet your employer’s needs, please submit a tuition statement request to [email protected], indicating it is needed for a tuition reimbursement program and including any other relevant information.

Academic Course Information: SFS can provide supporting financial documentation. If specific academic or course information is needed, please contact the University Registrar (UREG) at [email protected] with specific details for your request. Please refer to your employer/agency’s specific guidelines for required tuition reimbursement documentation.
