Please attach a course description for graduate level courses when you send the Tuition Concession form to Human Resources. As you utilize the Tuition Concession benefit, the Human Resources team will help inform you if each course you plan to take will be taxable.   If a course is taxable, the taxable amount is treated as “supplemental income” and it is automatically subject to a 25% flat federal withholding rate, 6% tax withholding for State, and 7.65% for FICA.

If you would like to make a change to your W-4 or NC-4 Forms, you may contact the Payroll Department (payroll@wfu.edu).
