Benefits update - Educational Assistance Policy


Published: 20Dec2006

We are pleased to advise that the level of reimbursement of tuition fees provided under the Educational Assistance Policy has now increased to 100% for all eligible staff regardless of years of service. This amendment is effective as of September 2006. Prior to this change, the amount of reimbursement was equivalent to 50% of tuition fees for staff with less than three years of service, and 100% thereafter.

The Educational Assistance policy provides for reimbursement of tuition fees for regular full-time staff who are taking credit courses as part of a University degree, diploma or certificate program and for credit courses taken as a special student. For more information on this policy, please refer to the Benefits website.

Upon successful completion of the course, you may apply for reimbursement of the tuition fees by completing the application form and submitting it with proof of successful completion. The application is available from the Benefits website or from your Area Personnel Office, or the Department of Human Resources (Benefits).
