For eligible dependent children, a College Tuition Scholarship benefit pays 50% of a student’s undergraduate tuition at accredited institutions outside of Columbia (up to an annually defined limit) for up to eight semesters. You are eligible for this benefit after completing four years of regular full-time salaried continuous service. Your child must matriculate into their degree program by the end of the month in which they turn age 26.
Your employment at Columbia, or at other nonprofit or governmental entities, may entitle you to certain loan forgiveness under the US Department of Education’s Public Loan Forgiveness Program. Questions about eligibility and qualifying loan payments must be directed to the US Department of Education. For more information, please carefully review the information provided by the U.S. Department of Education.
