Employer Reimbursement Option
Students must complete the electronic Employer Reimbursement form in PeopleSoft and provide an upload of their company’s tuition reimbursement plan to have their term payment deferred; instructions can be found by logging into PeopleSoft, selecting Main Menu, Self Service, CU SAS Forms and finally CU SAS Employer Reimbursement. Neglecting to complete the Employer Reimbursement form prior to the term due date will likely result in finance charges being added to your student account which will be your responsibility and not that of your employer.
