Tuition Assistance (TA) benefits are available to members pursuing undergraduate, graduate, or professional degrees. Tuition assistance is provided in the form of either a voucher or a reimbursement of one’s costs, depending on the school attended. Prior approval is necessary for participation in these programs and must be obtained before beginning classes. It is important that an interested individual speak with a Tuition Assistance Counselor prior to starting any college program. This conversation is to provide assistance in exploring options as well as provide valuable guidance based on academic history and career goals. It will also help to ensure that program(s) are approved for Tuition Assistance.
