What to Ask About Tuition Reimbursement
Tuition reimbursement can be a very valuable benefit if you are planning to go back to school. In addition to salary and benefits, it is something to keep in mind when evaluating a job offer if continuing your education is a priority.
Companies' tuition assistance programs vary widely, in how much they will reimburse, when you will be eligible, and what programs qualify for reimbursement. To understand your tuition reimbursement benefits, make sure you ask the right questions.
In addition to tuition reimbursement, many companies offer scholarships for employees or their families. Ask your human resource department what is available and how to apply.
