It was just a local discount at the local stores, not that great
Tuition discount for graduate classes 75% of tuition up to about $5,000 in savings. Can receive up to approximately 10,000 per year but any amount over the $5,000 limit increases taxable income.
A nice perk if you live or shop in the area of the university.
The discount for Employee tuition is 85% (up to $12,000 a year) for undergraduate and continuing studies, and 75% for graduate. There is also a tuition discount for dependents.
The employee discounts are nice, however, you need to look outside as well because sometimes the university is not the lowest overall price.
You get a series of "wildcard advantage" perks, but the most significant discount is for undergraduate and graduate tuition for staff and their families.
there is nothing worse about the discount
There are lots of software discounts available for employees, and the city of Evanston gives 10-15% discounts in store with a wildcard
Lots of discounts in Chicago and Evanston. Usually 10-20% if they have a Northwestern/ Wildcard Discount.
They offer it through many different brands and vendors such as verizon wireless etc
