Tuition Reimbursement

The Tuition Reimbursement program was created to help 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:

  • Employed as a staffing-table employee at ACC for 3 years or as defined by longevity for Adjunct Faculty by the time of the request date.

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

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

 

The FY20 application period will be open September 23 through October 4

Tuition Reimbursement Requests 

For the FY20 academic year, all Tuition Reimbursement applicants must complete an application stating the specifics of your request. Afterwards, all documentation will be submitted to a 5 person committee (comprised of one member from each of the 4 Employee Associations and 1 Administrator) to determine the top candidates for funding based on specific criteria (GPA, Career Objectives and Benefit to ACC, etc). HR will facilitate the conversation to ensure all information is presented in a non-biased format. Those applicants chosen for funding will need to provide a transcript at the end of the semester to verify their grades/academic standing/status.
