Tuition Reimbursement

The Tuition Reimbursement plan helps support employees looking to complete a bachelor's, master’s or doctoral degree with reimbursement funding towards their educational journey.

 Tuition reimbursement participants must be:

  • A staffing table employee and adjunct faculty who has been employed by the College for at least three (3) years by the tuition reimbursement request date.

  • Enrolled at an accredited college or university and earn a “C” or better and/or passing within a pass/fail credit course in attempted coursework. 

 Please note: Reimbursement allocation amounts are 75% of mandatory tuition and fees and up to $3000 per fiscal year per employee.

 

The FY22 application period will be open October 25 through November 7

 

Tuition Reimbursement Requests 

For the FY22 academic year, we will only have 1 application period during the Fall 2021 semester. All Tuition Reimbursement applicants/employees are required to complete an application, submit a short essay, and provide additional information (unofficial transcript) to be considered eligible for reimbursement. Afterwards, all documentation will reviewed for completion by HR Staff Professional Development and Evaluation.  Employees eligible for funding will need to provide a transcript at the end of the semester to verify their grades/academic standing/status.

The essay (1 page only) should cover the following elements:

  • Benefit to ACC as organization
  • Benefit to self development and career
  • Benefit to students/greater Austin community at large

 

Eligible applicants will be notified and coordinate with HR until reimbursement funding has been processed at the end of each subsequent semester.
