Educational Benefits

Employee Tuition Program

At USF, employees are encouraged to pursue continuous learning, including taking USF courses. As an educational institution, enrollment in our own programs adds value to the university. USF offers the Employee Tuition Program (ETP) to help our employees reach their educational goals. The ETP allows full time USF employees (excluding Temporary employees) to waive the tuition costs of up to 6 credit hours per semester. Summer terms A, B, and C are considered parts of one semester.
