Tuition Reimbursement: Overview

To support your career development, many employers offer an Educational Assistance Plan that allows you to submit some of your study-related expenses for reimbursement.

Often, an employer allows for tuition reimbursement to help you work towards the following goals:
- Improve your present job performance by obtaining new knowledge or skills needed to help you be more effective in your current position;
- Prepare you for a higher level job or career development; or
- Provide you with retraining or new skills that become necessary if the requirements of your current job will be changing.
