smuckersIt’s official, you have finally made the decision to return to school but you are starting to see dollar signs dance around your head. Don’t get discouraged from achieving your dreams and goals.  You know that you most definitely do not want to get a student loan and scholarships are sometimes hard to come by.  What if your company offered a tuition reimbursement program?  Many large companies are on board these wonderful programs, is your company one of them?  If not, consider finding out if your company would ever offer the program. If the company you work for declines the idea, consider applying to one of these companies just for the time being to take advantage of their tuition reimbursement program.  Keep in mind though that many companies set limits with the program like the length of time you must stay with them.  I think that this may be the only downside to tuition reimbursement programs but it’s definitely worth looking into.  Here is a brief list of companies as mentioned by Nicole Klemas which do offer tuition reimbursement.

One comment on “Companies with tuition reimbursement programs

  • A few more details about Boeing’s TRP. Funding is unlimited for degrees in what they classify as “related” fields, which includes all engineering degrees and a few other science fields that have something to do with aviation or technology. Limited funding is available for some other types of programs that aren’t directly (in Boeing’s opinion) related, but may help advance your career. Employees must have worked at Boeing one year to be eligible, and continue to work at the company two years after completing their degree. Furthermore, it’s not a tuition “reimbursement” per se – Boeing pays the school directly.
