Employee Benefits

The College provides valuable benefits for all eligible employees. Some benefits are designed to provide protection against financial loss due to medical and other costs and in most instances provide an indirect form of compensation. Benefits add considerable value each year to the total compensation of every eligible Ursinus College employee.

Retirement, Insurance, Education, Medical Benefits

The following is a very brief announcement of the plans currently offered. Literature that more fully describes the plans is available from the Personnel Office, Corson Hall or may be found on the online Informational Resources page. Employees should review plan descriptions, contracts, agreements and other descriptive literature of the several plans in order to become familiar with the plans. Additional information may be secured through direct contact with individual insurance carriers.


All full-time employees, regularly scheduled to work 35 or more hours per week, are eligible to apply for benefit programs.

Part-time employees are not eligible for benefits unless otherwise specified. Part-time employees, who are scheduled to work more than 1,000 hours per year but less than 35 hours per week, are eligible for some College benefits such as limited vacation benefits.  Details can be found on the Time Away from Work link.
