Employer tuition reimbursement
An advanced degree can transform your career, but the costs can be significant. Here’s the good news, your employer may be able to help with your education expenses. Companies are increasingly investing in continuing education to engage and upskill their employees.
The 2022 Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Employee Benefits Survey found that 48 percent of employers offer undergraduate and graduate tuition assistance.
Find out if your company offers education reimbursement benefits.
Check your employee handbook, or set up a quick meeting with HR to understand your options. Tuition reimbursement (also known as tuition assistance) is an employee benefit from your employer. Many employers will pay for a pre-determined amount of continuing education credits or college coursework to be applied toward a degree.
These benefits vary by employer, so it’s important that you review the program details to make sure you meet any employer-specific employee and coursework eligibility requirements.
