Regular, full-time employees who have been with the College for six (6) months are eligible for tuition and continuing education benefits. Part-time, benefits-eligible employees must have been employed one (1) year to be eligible. Adjunct Faculty are also eligible for tuition benefits as described in the CBA.


Requests for tuition waivers and tuition reimbursement forms should be directed to the Office of Human Resources. Tuition waiver requests must be completed each semester or you will be charged for the class. The form below is to be used by MCAD employees in requesting a tuition waiver for themselves to take one class per semester, as well as for employee or their dependents to attend the MCAD Graduate or Undergraduate Program, if admitted to those programs. 



Once they have met the eligibility requirements, employees are eligible to participate in the Tuition Reimbursement Program. Courses directly relevant to one’s present position will be reimbursed up to $3,488.00 per fiscal year. This reimbursement is for tuition cost only; fees, materials, books, etc. are not eligible for reimbursement under this program. There may be situations where the number of eligible applicants exceeds the College’s budgeted amount for tuition reimbursement. In this case, the reimbursement may be given on a pro rata basis.



Tuition Exchange is a reciprocal educational scholarship program comprised of more than 600 private and public not-for-profit colleges and universities. Its purpose is two-fold in that it makes careers at participating schools attractive with the added benefit of offering multiple opportunities for employees to defray college costs for their dependents.

For more details, Tuition Exchange put together a 15 minute video giving an overview of the program.




As a not-for-profit organization, MCAD employees may be able to receive loan forgiveness under the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) Program. PSLF forgives the remaining balance on your Direct Loans after you have made 120 qualifying monthly payments under a qualifying repayment plan while working full-time for a qualifying employer.
