Deadlines for Tarleton Family Education Benefit Program

Eligible employees and/or eligible dependents apply for the benefit by completing the Tarleton Family Education Benefit application for each term enrolled.  We have extended the deadline to determine employee 6-month eligibility to the census date of the 12-week term for Summer or the 16-week term for Fall/Spring.  We processed Spring Applications in 2023 according to that same deadline.  We have extended the timeline to apply to the first day of classes for the 12-week term for Summer or the 16-week term for Fall/Spring.

You must apply and submit by the deadline to receive the benefit for the specified term. No payments will be applied retroactively. No credits will be applied for prior terms. No refund will be included in your financial aid refund package for this benefit.
