The College of Saint Elizabeth strives to offer a quality educational experience that meets the unique needs of working adults. Our Good Neighbor Tuition Deferral Program (GNP) is one way we can assist you with the financial commitment you are making.
Eligibility for participation in the GNP is based on your employer. Students who are employed by an organizations designated as a Good Neighbor Organization are eligible to defer a portion of their tuition charges until 45 days after the end of the semester. This allows you time to receive your reimbursement from your employer without having to pay the entire cost up front.
The amount of this deferral is based in part on the tuition assistance amount permitted by individual employers divided between fall and spring terms (Health Care Management students’ amounts are divided into fall, spring, and summer). The balance is due upon receipt of the bill and the deferred amount is due 45 days after the end of the semester.
Eligible students will be identified based on the employer listed on the admission application. There is no fee to participate in this program and the CSE staff will verify employment each year directly through the employer.
Students not employed by one of the GNP organizations, but who are eligible to receive tuition reimbursement through their employer, are encouraged to contact the Office of Admissions to discuss the possibility of establishing a GNP partnership between CSE and their employer. As we continue our efforts to establish new relationships and add organizations as GNP partners, we can continually expand the pool of students eligible for this important benefit.
