UMass Lowell offers employer reimbursement and tuition deferment opportunities to students who are employed by one of UMass Lowell's approved corporate academic partners and who meet their employers' conditions for participating in the program. Students participating in this program will be able to defer tuition payments until completion of the semester with no finance or interest charges. This program should not be used by students who use authorizations to bill or third-party vouchers to pay their tuition.
Tuition Deferment Application Deadlines
Students must submit a Tuition Deferment Agreement before each semester in which they plan to enroll. UMass Lowell's Office of Student Financial Services must receive the Agreement, signed by the authorized representative at the student's employer, prior to the start of the semester or the student may not be eligible to participate in the tuition deferment program for that semester.
Tuition Payment Deadlines for Approved Participants
Please note that not all corporate academic partners participating in UMass Lowell's tuition deferment program will cover the full cost of enrollment; in some cases, the tuition amount covered is dependent on the student's academic performance. Other employers may not cover certain enrollment fees. Students participating in the tuition deferment program who receive a bill must pay the balance 30 days after the last day of class.
