Employees seeking to expand education through TAP program may apply earlier than usual for Summer 2020 semester.

Tuition Assistance Program application period opens March 15

Summer 2020 applications for the Tuition Assistance Program at Augusta University will be accepted early this semester. Applicants will be able to submit a completed TAP application from March 15-April 15.

All applicants must be accepted at one of the USG teaching institutions before submitting a TAP application. Augusta University employees and faculty applying for TAP benefits who are charged out-of-state tuition should apply for an Out of State Tuition Waiver through the Augusta University Registrar’s Office. This waiver can lower your TAP benefit amount, which becomes taxable for benefits that exceed the IRS threshold of $5,250.

This information may be found on your POUNCE Account under the “Student” tab. Click “Student Records” and “View Student Information” to see your “Residence” status. Please contact the Registrar’s Office at records@augusta.edu for specific waiver details.

The Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) is designed to promote professional growth and development of full-time employees and part-time nursing faculty. Tuition assistance is the waiver of up to nine (9) hours of tuition and certain fees per semester for employees enrolled in courses on the Augusta University campus and at other University System of Georgia (USG) institutions.

Potential applicants can make an appointment with TAP coordinator Jonathan Gibbs for more information. Visit the TAP website to learn more.
