You may be eligible for tuition reimbursement from your employer. Many regional and national companies have partnered with Marylhurst in the past, like NIKE, Portland General Electric, Xerox, Reser’s Fine Foods, Pfizer, Intel, IBM, Boeing, Clackamas Community College, Mentor Graphics and Target. It’s always good to check with your employer to see if this benefit exists with your company or organization.
Employer Reimbursement and Financial Aid
If your employer offers a tuition reimbursement program, please be aware that the Office of Financial Aid considers this employee benefit as part of your financial resources when determining your eligibility for aid.
If you apply for federal financial aid and/or scholarships, you will need to inform the Office of Financial Aid in writing of the amount of your tuition benefit.
If the employee benefits result in an over-award of need-based aid, the Office of Financial Aid may be required to reduce your aid dollars. This could mean that you have to repay a portion of any financial aid you have already received.
Payment Arrangements with Employer
If you receive tuition reimbursement from your employer, you can select one of two ways to arrange payment for each term’s coursework. And just as a heads up, for both plans, you, not your employer, hold the responsibility for payment.
- If your employer plans to pay at the beginning of the term, please provide the Office of Student Accounts a signed letter of financial guarantee from your employer that confirms this arrangement. Your employer will be billed at the beginning of the term.
- If your employer plans to pay at the end of the term or after grades are issued, you will need to fill out a Promissory Note. Each term you will need to fill out a new Promissory Note. Submit the Promissory Note to the Office of Student Accounts along with your employer’s tuition reimbursement policy and proof of employment. There is a $50 charge for this option. Payment on promissory notes is due the third week after term ends.
