How the WageWorks Tuition Reimbursement Program Works

The WageWorks® Tuition Reimbursement Program is simple. You just pay tuition and related fees as you would normally. In most cases, you 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 setup, 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.

Your employer sets your annual tuition reimbursement limit and determines which expenses are eligible for reimbursement. Typical eligible expenses include tuition for college courses, specialized training programs, and private elementary and high school.

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.


Annual Reimbursement Limits

Your employer determines annual tuition reimbursement limit and which expenses are eligible for reimbursement. Ask the person or organization managing your benefits enrollment for details on your specific program.
