Programs for Educational Advancement

The Wesleyan educational assistance benefit covers employees who are working towards an undergraduate or graduate degree program.  Administrative staff members whose FTE is at least .75 are eligible to be reimbursed for up to $1,500 per year for successful completion of up to two courses per semester at other accredited colleges and universities. Year is based on the fiscal year when the course(s) begin. Reimbursement is limited if tuition is reimbursed by other assistance (e.g., GI Bill®, research grant, fellowship, etc.). Additionally, the costs of books, other course materials, parking, and graduation expenses are not covered.   

To apply for this benefit please submit a tuition reimbursement application form before enrolling. To be eligible for reimbursement, this application must be approved by your supervisor and submitted to Human Resources prior to course enrollment. A fee schedule must be provided along with the application form. As soon as possible after the course(s) has been completed provide to Human Resources proof of payment and grade reports, evaluations, or transcripts indicating successful completion.   

Represented employees covered by contracts have a similar benefit and must follow the same process.
