These corporate partnerships may provide tuition discounts and other benefits to employees. Contact a program manager to find out if your employer has a partnership with Benedictine or how they can connect with us to create one.

Tuition Reimbursement

Some employers reimburse employees for part or all of their tuition. To determine if you are eligible for tuition reimbursement, follow these steps:

  1. Visit your human resources department or company website and request a copy of the tuition reimbursement policy. After you've enrolled at Benedictine, you can fax this document to the Financial Aid Office to begin the process.
  2. Determine your total eligibility amount. You will have to determine if the award is calendar year or fiscal year.
    • Tip: Ask your human resources department if they have a tax cap. A tax cap is when your company pays a set amount and then will begin to deduct income taxes from any additional reimbursement.
  3. Once you are enrolled, a financial aid counselor will guide you through the tuition reimbursement process. The Office of Financial Aid will issue an agreement for you to sign, with the tuition reimbursement amounts and due dates.
  4. Complete a Release of Information Letter. This form gives the university permission to send your employer an invoice for your courses and other required information.

NOTE: Prior to starting each session you must send in a new tuition reimbursement voucher. The voucher lists the courses that are covered by your employer for the session with specific coverage amounts. The Office of Financial Aid will keep this on record and send your employer an invoice for the reimbursement amount when you have completed your course(s).

If Your Employer Doesn't Have a Reimbursement Policy

Even if your organization doesn't have an official tuition reimbursement policy or program, you may be able to work something out. Talk to your employer about the benefits of their employees earning a degree:

  • Advancing your education may enable you as an employee to be more efficient and effective on the job.
  • Programs like tuition reimbursement make employees feel valued and promote company loyalty.
  • Supporting advanced education makes it easier to promote employees from within the company, rather than spending money and time on outside recruiting for high-level positions.

For more ideas on how to discuss tuition reimbursement with your employer, talk to your program manager.
