How the Program Works

The Tuition Reimbursement Program is simple. You just pay tuition and related fees as you would normally. In most cases, you then simply file a claim with documentation that confirms course participation and grade, and you’re reimbursed for eligible tuition expenses.

Depending on your employer’s plan, there are several ways to get reimbursed for eligible expenses:

  • You may be reimbursed through automatic payroll payments; or
  • You may receive an expense check; or
  • Your school or program may be paid directly by your employer.

While your employer may not require them for reimbursement, it’s always a good idea to keep receipts for any eligible out-of-pocket expenses you pay.

Enrolling in the Program

You can sign up for the Tuition Reimbursement Program any time—there’s no need to wait for the next Open Enrollment period. Contact the person or organization managing your benefits enrollment to start today.
