Participating in an Employer Reimbursement program is another way to help pay for your tuition. At Johnson & Wales University, we try to support as many of these programs as we can to make sure the total amount you pay is as low as possible.
- How does employer reimbursement work?
- Your employer is responsible for paying a specified percentage of your tuition
- You are responsible for the balance after reimbursement
- The program must be renewed prior to the start of each academic year
- How do I apply for an employer reimbursement program?
- The first thing you’ll need to do is contact your employer’s human resources department to determine your eligibility for any programs your employer offers. After that, simply complete the reimbursement form and submit this along with your company’s policy to our financial aid department.
JWU extends a tuition discount to benefit-eligible employees of our educational partnership organizations.
