External Tuition Benefit

After three years of continuous service, eligible employees may apply for tuition assistance for their legally dependent children, or legally dependent children of their eligible domestic partner, for 75% of the cost of tuition to a maximum of $975 per semester, or $1,950 per year, when attending an accredited college other than Skidmore for an undergraduate degree. This benefit is not available if the student is participating in the Tuition Exchange Program.  Legally dependent children are those who qualify as dependents under the IRS code. Tuition assistance is available for up to eight semesters of undergraduate studies.
