Tuition Benefit

St. Olaf College offers a partial tuition waiver for dependent children of faculty and staff to attend and receive a bachelor’s degree from St. Olaf or other eligible ELCA or ACM post-secondary institutions around the country.


Both the employee and student must meet certain eligibility requirements to utilize the tuition benefit. Review the policy in the Staff Handbook.

Benefit Amount and Duration

The tuition benefit amount and duration are based on the employee’s FTE grouping. Room and Board is always an additional cost and is not used to determine the amount of the tuition benefit. Families will not be informed of the actual tuition benefit amount until the student has completed the application for the college, the Tuition Benefit Application, and has been accepted to the college.
