The Ferris State University Employer Tuition Reimbursement (ETR) program was developed to assist statewide and online students who qualify for tuition reimbursement through their employer.

To qualify for the ETR program students must submit the following application documents and enrollment fee EVERY semester:

  1. A completed and signed Employer Tuition Reimbursement Agreement submitted via email to fsugr@ferris.edu or by fax to (616) 451-4740.
  2. A current letter of eligibility on company letterhead stating criteria for reimbursement up to XXX%.
  3. A $35 enrollment fee for registration into the ETR program. Fee payments should be submitted online through the MyFSU Ebill payment suite using an electronic check or debit/credit card.

Complete ETR applications (agreement form, letter, and enrollment fee) can also be mailed or submitted to the Ferris-Grand Rapids location at the following address:

    • Late ETR Agreements and Eligibility Letters will not be accepted.

  • Students must have all previous balances paid in full to participate in future ETR programs.

  • Tuition costs and fees are the sole responsibility of the student and must be paid within 30 days of grades posting even if reimbursement has not been received.
    • Failure to make timely tuition payments will result in Registration and Transcript HOLDS being placed on student accounts and may affect students ability to participate in future ETR programs. Late fees may also be assessed and delinquent student accounts may be sent to collections.

  • The $35 ETR enrollment fee is separate from tuition.

  • The Ferris State Univeristy Bookstore (Barnes and Noble) does not participate in the ETR program.
    • Textbooks should be paid in full at the time of purchase and should not be charged against a student’s account.
    • Students who do charge their textbooks against their student accounts are expected to make payment for them within 30 days of purchase

  • Financial aid (grants, scholarships and loans) awards will affect a student’s eligibility in the ETR program.
    • Any financial aid award will be applied to a student’s account and will be deducted from the amount of reimbursement a student qualifies for under the ETR program.
    • ETR students do not receive a Financial Aid refund
    • If a student’s Financial Aid award exceeds the total tuition cost the student will not qualify to participate in the ETR program.
