Onsego, an online publisher of GED preparatory materials, has published a list of major American corporations that reimburse or pay upfront for your college tuition.
An increasing number of US corporations have developed initiatives to let their employees earn a GED® diploma, a professional certificate, or even a bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral degree. Onsego believes that workers that are better educated will have better lives.
These initiatives not only benefit the workers as they can boost their skills and knowledge at their employer’s expense, but the companies will also benefit since these plans contribute to recruiting, retaining, and developing their staffers.
Once the employees have earned their GED, they can continue to get professional certifications or even a college degree. An employee that doesn’t have a secondary education credential (high school diploma or GED) can usually not enroll in credit-bearing college programs, be it online or at a brick-and-mortar school.
Tuition reimbursement plans
Tuition reimbursement plans offer employees the chance to enhance their educational level while being hired by an employer. And the good thing is that the employer will pick up the tab, partly or entirely.
It used to be that most plans reimbursed the workers when they successfully completed an educational program most of the time, but today, the trend is that employers have arrangements with colleges (online or physical) and will pay upfront.
