Tuition Reimbursement Forms on City's Intranet Site
For more information please call Civil Service at 215-2106.
Tuition reimbursement for employees is a plan which offers financial assistance to an employee who takes college-level courses directly related to his/her work or to a position the employee might conceivably be considered for in the future and which is likely to increase his/her value to the City. This program is not specifically intended to support a full-time course of study, but is designed to enhance the quality of work that the individual brings to the job. It is provided to those employees classified as regular full-time or regular part-time who have satisfactorily completed one year of continuous service.

Employees may submit classes taken at colleges and universities that are accredited by a Regional accrediting agency as recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation for pre-approval. Only courses on a for-grade basis and for college credit are eligible. Only tuition may be reimbursed; fees, books, etc. are not eligible for reimbursement. If courses are pre-approved, employees may submit the class for reimbursement during the eligible reimbursement period each fiscal year and may receive up to $3,000 per fiscal year in reimbursement.

For receiving reimbursement under this policy, an employee must agree to continue in employment with the City for at least one year from the date of completion of the course(s) being reimbursed and to return the reimbursement if the employee does not continue in City employment for at least one year.

For more information about the tuition reimbursement program, please contact Civil Service at 865-215-2106.
