Many companies offer financial assistance to their employees and/or their children interested in furthering their education. The human resource/benefits department of each employer should be able to inform you about the types of financial assistance offered by their company.

Some employers may offer:

Employer Tuition Programs
  Some employers offer tuition assistance programs for employees considering going back to school. According to IRS regulations, employers can provide up to $5,250 to each employee per year on a tax-free basis. Additional employer tuition assistance is taxed, so many employers stay within the IRS guidelines and limit. The IRS Publication 970 can provide you with additional information about the employer-provided educational assistance benefits.

If your employer is willing to invest in your future, it is important that you understand their polices and guidelines such as: GPA requirements, tuition payment / reimbursement programs, career/major requirements, post-degree work requirements, payment for books and materials, completion schedule for courses/degree, etc.

  Some employers offer scholarships for dependents (children) of their employees. Ask your parent(s) to contact their benefits / personnel office at their company regarding any scholarships for employees' dependents. If their employer offers scholarships for students, request an application package.

If you are working part-time for a company that offers scholarships to its employees, ask your supervisor or benefits personnel office if you are eligible to apply for these scholarships. If you are eligible to apply, request an application.

Employer Loans
  Some employers offer low interest-rate college loans to employees and/or employees’ dependents (children).
