Graduate Tuition Remission Programs

Goodwin College supports its employees, and other members of the Goodwin community, in the achievement of their academic goals.  The College has established a scholarship program to provide full tuition remission to its eligible full-time employees, and 50% tuition remission to eligible part-time employees including adjunct faculty as well as spouses and dependents of Magnet school employees.

If an employee’s spouse or dependent, a magnet school employee or their spouse or dependent, enrolls in a cohort they will receive a 50% tuition remission for the duration of their time in the program (provided they maintain continuous enrollment).  This 50% scholarship may not be available for new enrollees in future semesters. 

In order to ensure a rich academic experience within each cohort, spaces for full-time Goodwin College employees are limited to 25% of each cohort.  In the event that the number of eligible full-time employees exceeds the amount of space available, the College will award spaces based on a number of factors, including but not limited to organizational need and length of employment.  There is no space limit for other eligible members of the Goodwin community.  

The tuition remission is a tuition-only scholarship that also covers applicable program fees. Prior to receiving this scholarship, the recipient must be accepted for admission to the program, and formally request scholarship consideration by sending an email to the VP of Human Resources. If the recipient wishes to apply for federal, state or private financial aid, the amount of the scholarship awarded will be the difference between the financial aid received and the program’s tuition and fees. Books and supplies are the responsibility of the student. Professional development money cannot be applied to cover these fees.
