Benefit Eligibility Process
Students will receive benefits as outlined in the Tuition Benefit program between Ashford University and the Participating Organization once the eligibility requirements are met and the steps outlined in the Benefit Eligibility Request form are completed.
Benefits are available to:
EMPLOYEES OF SELECT EMPLOYERS
MEMBERS OF SELECT ASSOCIATIONS
IMMEDIATE FAMILY MEMBERS OF SELECT EMPLOYERS
Immediate family members include spouse, parents and grandparents, children and grandchildren, brothers and sisters, mother in law and father in law, brothers in law and sisters in law, daughters in law and sons in law. Adopted, half, and step members are also included in the immediate family.
Students requesting benefits must submit the Benefit Eligibility Request form indicating their selection of benefit type along with proof of eligibility as instructed on the form.
Loss of Benefit Eligibility
Any of the following circumstances may result in the loss of benefit eligibility:
1. Withdrawal or dismissal from Ashford University, or
2. A break in enrollment for more than 14 days without an approved Break Request.
If benefits are lost for one of the above reasons, you will need to resubmit the Benefit Eligibility Request form in order to regain your benefits affiliated with your employer. You may be eligible to retain benefits under the College Continuation Benefit.
For questions about the process, please contact your Enrollment Services Advisor or your Financial Services Advisor. When speaking with an advisor mention you are a member of the WinCo community and talk to your advisor about the cost of attendance at Ashford University.
