Fringe Benefits

The University does not have a federally negotiated fringe benefit rate.  Employee fringe benefits costs are charged to sponsored projects based upon actual benefits elected by individual programs.  They include social security, unemployment, health insurance and retirement programs.  Tuition remission benefits are also charged as appropriate to individual employees.
