WVUMedicine Employee Dependent Tuition Benefit

To support employees and their dependent children, WVU Medicine is providing a dependent tuition assistance program effective August 1, 2018. For information on eligibility, maximum benefits, and program guidelines please visit WVU Medicine. Below is an explanation of the awarding process.

Below are examples of different resident and non-resident student scenarios and the corresponding WVU Medicine tuition benefit amount. The values used in the scenarios below are based on current estimates for 2018-2019 tuition and fees, these are subject to change. Please note that there are many scenarios where there are enough scholarships, grants, or other tuition support to reduce the benefit to $0 even if the student is eligible. The WVU Medicine Employee Benefit may cover University tuition only so students may still owe a balance for other charges.

If no benefit appears on your student account, please review any email communications from WVU Medicine and WVU. Possible reasons include student’s academic ineligibility or student’s grants, scholarships and other tuition support exceed the maximum benefit of university tuition.

Students may NOT receive this benefit and the WVU Dependent Education Scholarship.
