Employee Tuition Reimbursement Programs

A $300.00 deposit is required, at registration, if you defer any portion of your tuition.  If a class(s) is dropped the deferment status may change.

If your employer offers tuition or educational reimbursement, we will defer that amount until the end of the semester, upon employer notification.   You will be required to pay the remaining balance above the benefit reimbursement, by the first day of class. The deferred balance will be due, in full, 30 days after grades are posted.  It is the student's responsibility to submit the required documents to their Human Resource Department. The reimbursement benefit is usually paid to the student directly.  Balances not paid within the 30 days will be subject to the 1% monthly interest charge.
