Many employers offer some level of tuition reimbursement to their employees. Whether your employer offers full or partial reimbursement, this valuable benefit can help you save money and reduce your student debt while you earn your degree. Check out the following tips to see how you can make the most of tuition reimbursement opportunities through your employer:
1. Talk to HR about tuition options through your employer, which may include:
2. Choose courses or a program that meets requirements set by your employer—they may require that your degree is applicable to your job.
3. Let your employer know the benefits of the program—what you will gain and how this will help your position in the company.
4. Prepare responses to your employer’s concerns (i.e., how will you balance school and work? How do you plan on using these acquired skills?).
5. Meet with your employer to go over the benefits—for both you and the company.
