Graduate Tuition Waiver & taxation

UCF staff cannot give tax advice or assist students in calculating individual credit amounts. Please consult a tax advisor for assistance.

Tuition waivers received by UCF employees for graduate level courses are a taxable benefit under IRS regulations when they exceed the allowable limit. Please be advised that the value of the benefit above the allowable limit is included in your taxable income and is subject to the supplemental tax rate for federal withholding, plus the appropriate FICA tax rate. Those taxes will be deducted from your paycheck(s) and be included on your Form W-2 from UCF.
