Human Resources

Dependent Children, Spouses and Legally Domiciled Adults

Eligible dependents may utilize the benefits for all semesters noted on our main Tuition benefit page.

Dependent children are eligible for the benefit until the age of 24 only. If your dependent child reaches the age of 24 prior to the start of the semester they are no longer eligible to receive the tuition benefit. However if they reach 24 mid-semester they can continue to receive the benefit until the end of the semester only. The Tuition Benefit for all eligible dependents will not be added until they have registered for courses and completed the FAFSA.

  1. Undergraduate Students: Tuition Benefit pays 100% of tuition only. Employees and their dependents are financially responsible for co-pays, program deposits, room and board and course fees not covered by the Tuition Benefit Policy. Undergraduate Tuition Benefit is non-taxable. *However, please note that any LDA Tuition Benefit received is taxable and imputed as income for the employee. Human Resources will add the value of the benefit to the employee's bi-weekly or monthly pay and the employee will be taxed on that amount. Dependent children are only eligible for the tuition benefit up to the age of 24. The Tuition Benefit covers J-term, Spring, Summer, Fall semesters, certain Study Abroad programs and the Summer Scholars program.
  2. Graduate Students: Dependent Children, Spouses/LDA’s are not eligible for the Tuition Benefit for Graduate Programs.

If your dependent makes any changes to their courses after the Tuition Benefit has been applied please reach out to Edward Moore emoore@luc.edu so an adjustment to your benefit can be made.

Summer Scholars Program

Since the Summers Scholars program isn't a traditional undergrad program no FAFSA form is required. Employees simply need to enroll their dependents in the Summer Scholars program http://www.luc.edu/summerscholars/.  All fees are paid through the Bursars office. No verification from Human Resources or additional forms are required for participation. We encourage all parents to contact Omega Styles the Summers Scholars Program coordinator directly if you have questions about the program at 773.508.8349.
