Important update on Tuition Assistance benefit for Service/Maintenance, LPN and Non-Professional Bargaining Unit Workers

If you want to receive funding to complete a certificate or degree program, please complete our application. We will review your application and determine if you are eligible for education benefits.

Once your eligibility is confirmed, you will be assigned to a Regional Education Navigator. Your Navigator will provide you with specifics about the funding process and other important deadlines to help you with your education pathway.

Please know that Tuition Assistance funding for Service/Maintenance, LPN and Non-Professional Bargaining Unit Members is no longer available for 2019. Your application will be added to our Tuition Assistance rolling enrollment list and will be reviewed after our rolling enrollment period ends October 15, 2019. If your application is accepted for funding, you will be notified on November 15, 2019. If it is not accepted for funding, it will be saved for the next rolling enrollment period that ends May 15, 2020.

Please read our Tuition Assistance Program Guidelines.

Also note: Changing your employment status to per-diem makes you ineligible for any Training Fund benefit.

Going back to school with the Training Fund is life changing for many of our members and we are committed to helping you achieve success in the classroom while continuing your work. We look forward to serving you as you pursue your education and career goals.
