Dependency Benefit

A student must be a dependent of a Syracuse University faculty/staff member who has been approved through the office of Human Resources for dependency tuition benefits for the semester of registration. It is the University employee’s responsibility to ensure their benefit eligibility with Human Resources prior to registration.


Only matriculated Syracuse University undergraduate students registered for six (6) or more credit hours in a semester are eligible for this payment award.

Student Obligation

Non-covered expenses are the responsibility of the student. Any loss of coverage may result in student responsibility for the entire semester tuition and expenses.

Courses cannot be dropped to avoid financial penalty after the financial drop deadline due to non-receipt or loss of this benefit.
