Termination of Employment

How Your Family’s Benefit Is Affected

Generally, if your employment ends before the first day of class, your spouse and dependents will be required to pay full tuition for the courses taken that semester. If your employment ends before the last day of classes, your spouse’s and dependents’ benefits will continue until the end of the semester.
