That's why we provide tuition assistance to qualified employees and dependents. Do you want to grow your expertise in your career field? Does your spouse or child plan to earn a degree? Is there a subject you’d just love to know more about? Whatever your goals, we’re here to support you and to help you save money.

Tuition Assistance Benefit can be used by you, the employee, or you may transfer it to your dependent(s).  Employees must fill out a Tuition Assistance Benefit application each semester they intend to utilize it for themselves or their dependents. You must decide who will use the benefit for each academic year, which runs from fall to summer:
