Fund Your Education with Tuition Reimbursement from your Employer

You may not feel like you have the money or time to return to school, but paying for an online certificate program with tuition reimbursement from your employer can help. Your work schedule and income will remain the same, but you will be furthering your education without emptying your pockets.

Statistics indicate that nearly half of workers in the U.S. get some form of tuition assistance from their employer. Some businesses will pay for work-related courses, or any courses toward the completion of an online certificate program.

Many workers do not even think to ask their employer if they would offer tuition assistance, but may be surprised to find that they do. Employers and employees alike benefit from furthering education, so it is no surprise that employers are willing to reimburse tuition costs.

It is important to approach your employer with your plan in mind. Present your desired online certificate program along with the prospective courses you will be enrolling in. Also emphasize how it will make you a more efficient and productive employee and how your employer will benefit from you furthering your education. Your employer will more than likely be happy to offer some form of tuition assistance or reimbursement for your online certificate program.
