Tuition Support Plan Deadline
February 28, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
The Tuition Support Plan provides post-secondary tuition support for the dependant children (under 25) and spouses or partners of eligible Queen’s faculty and staff attending a university or college recognized under Universities Canada (formerly the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada) or Colleges and Institutes Canada (formerly the Association of Canadian Community Colleges). Attendance at institutions outside Canada will be evaluated individually based on accreditations and the tuition plan for the employee group.
The application period for the Tuition Support Plan opens on August 15th for the fall term and December 15th for the winter term each year (note: GFT employees apply for the full year during the winter application period). Once the application has been made, a Confirmation of Registration Form, completed by the student’s post-secondary institution, needs to be received by Queen’s University Student Awards Office by the deadlines noted in the table below.
Please note that incomplete applications will not be accepted beyond the respective deadline.
Appeal process: If you missed the deadline for applying or your application was declined and you would like to make an appeal under the Tuition Support Benefit Plan, please complete an appeal form. Please note that only significant adversity will be considered when the reason for appealing is a missed deadline. Significant adversity will not include things like: “I was too busy”, either with personal or work commitments; “I forgot because no reminder was sent out”, etc. Do not use the appeal form if the online application system is telling you that you are ineligible for the benefit. Please contact HR Benefits immediately in that case.
