Additional Benefits and Information
ACTC Tuition Benefit
Augsburg University, Hamline University, Macalester College, St. Catherine University, and the University of St. Thomas are institutions within the Associated Colleges of the Twin Cities (ACTC). Under a Memorandum of Understanding, participating institutions offer tuition remission for the dependent children and spouses of eligible employees. Each institution determines the percentage of remission they provide to students accepted through the ACTC program. The lower benefit percentage is effective when the sending and receiving institution remission benefits differ. See the ACTC Tuition Remission Benefit Percent chart below to determine the percentage of remission provided by each institution.
