The ACS Tuition Discount offered to ACU employees is granted on a semester-by-semester basis. Should an Employee leave ACU or withdraw the Employee's child from ACS prior to the completion of the ACS school year, then the benefit paid by ACU will be discontinued. Because ACU pays the benefit to ACS in advance, the Employee will be required to reimburse ACU for the portion of the benefit that is attributable to the remainder of the ACS school year. The Employee will be responsible for the remainder of their contract with ACS.

If the Employee is leaving ACU, this reimbursement amount will be withheld from the Employee's final paycheck.  If the Employee is not leaving ACU but has withdrawn the Employee's child from ACS during the school year, then the reimbursement amount will be billed to the Employee.

Abilene Christian School's portion is determined by the Board of Abilene Christian Schools and is subject to change.

PROCEDURE
Application forms are submitted annually to Human Resources. This grant will be awarded in conjunction with Abilene Christian Schools based on the employee's date of employment at the beginning of each semester.
