Open Enrollment 2024

The college’s annual open enrollment period begins Monday, November 27, 2023 and closes Monday, December 11, 2023. All benefit-eligible employees must complete open enrollment, even if you don’t plan to make changes or if you plan to waive benefit coverage. Any benefit changes made during open enrollment will become effective January 1, 2024.

This year we will use a new online benefits portal. You may use the information below to register your Ben360 account so you can login to complete open enrollment. Benefits costs will not be increasing in 2024; however, bi-weekly payroll deductions for certain benefits will move from 26 deductions per year to 24 resulting in a change to the price per pay period. Please see the rate schedule below for additional information.

If you have questions regarding open enrollment, please contact Human Resources at, or in the Academic Complex, Room 105.

Millsaps College Employee Tuition Exchange Benefit

Immediately upon hire, all benefit eligible staff employees, or their spouses, who are interested in pursuing subjects for personal growth and development may take one undergraduate course per semester with tuition waived. This waiver does not include comprehensive fees, private music lessons, room or board.

After three consecutive years of service, reduced tuition for undergraduate course work at the College is available to full-time regular staff employees, and proportionately to eligible part-time regular staff employees, for themselves, their spouses, and their dependent children. The cost is $20 per undergraduate credit hour up to a maximum of $300 per semester. Comprehensive fees, private music lessons, room and board are charged at their usual rates.

Tuition Remission for graduate courses will be equivalent to one-half the normal rate per graduate hour for a maximum of two (2) courses or six (6) graduate hours per semester. All other fees related to graduate enrollment will be charged as stated in the college catalog. Eligibility for Tuition Remission is limited to regular, full-time faculty and staff members and college officers with at least one year of service. Spouses, children or other dependents are not eligible for graduate tuition assistance.

Millsaps participates in three tuition exchange programs. Children of eligible Millsaps employees may attend participating colleges situated throughout the nation on a full or partial undergraduate tuition scholarship.

For information about the College benefit eligibility, contact Isabelle Higbee.

For information about the participating schools, you may visit the websites of the Associated Colleges of the South, The Tuition Exchange or The Council of Independent Colleges.
