Beginning September 8, 2015 Education at Work announced that it would be changing the amount of time students need to work before earning tuition assistance. Students no longer have to wait  four months after being hired to apply for tuition assistance – the process has been reduced to just two months! Here are some of the highlights:

The new generation  

Incoming students will only be required to work for two months before being able to apply for tuition assistance. From that point on, they will be eligible to apply again for tuition assistance every two months. The same goes for existing students, who can apply for tuition assistance so long as two months have passed since their last reimbursement.

With classic tools

The application process will not change. Applications can still be found on the Employee Self-Service Portal of Paycor under “HR Forms.” To submit the application students will still email their application, most recent bill, and most recent semester GPA, to [email protected]. Students are also still eligible for up to $6,000 per calendar year.

A freshly paved pathway to success

Cutting the time it takes to get tuition assistance will increase the frequency in which Education at Work can help students pay off their debt. By having more opportunities to get tuition assistance throughout the year, Education at Work is making it faster and easier to graduate with little to no debt.

Get excited! This school year is shaping up to be a great one!
