Learning & Development Benefits

Along with ongoing training and development opportunities, MSU Denver and the L&D team are proud to offer the Professional Development Fund for full-time staff and the Employee Undergraduate Tuition Scholarship for benefits-eligible faculty and staff. See below for additional details.

Employee Tuition Benefit

Benefits-eligible employees can apply to receive an undergraduate tuition benefit for themselves, their spouse, and/or their dependents.

Tuition Benefit Process

  1. Employee and Student should read the Employee Tuition Benefit Procedures and attend a Employee Tuition Benefit Info Session (Info Session is not required, but highly recommended)
  2. Apply for University Admissions
  3. Register for Classes
  4. Apply for the MSU Denver Employee Tuition Benefit
  5. Student must Apply for the Tuition Benefit every semester

   The Tuition Benefit Application Has Moved

The Tuition Benefit Application has moved to the MSU Denver Learning & Development SharePoint site!
If you are an employee interested in using the benefit for yourself or your dependent/spouse, visit SharePoint for the most up-to-date information. You must have a MSU Denver login to access the SharePoint site. If the student does not yet have MSU Denver log-in credentials, those will be generated after being granted admissions.

Professional Development Fund

The Professional Development (PD) Fund’s purpose is to provide full-time staff the opportunity to pursue professional development activities of their choosing, and be reimbursed up to $750 per employee, per fiscal year. Individual funds can be used for professional development activities such as conferences, seminars, trainings, and courses and requires supervisor approval. Professional Development Fund applications will only be accepted via e-mail. Remember to put your full name in the subject line (e.g. Jane Doe PD Fund Application). Please review the policy and eligibility requirements prior to submitting the form electronically to

The Professional Development Fund Application is now open for Fiscal Year 2019/2020!

With the launch of Chrome River, there will be some changes to the Policy and Procedures. Please be patient while we confirm the details and process applications. Contact Elizabeth Wellington at with any questions.
