Employer Tuition Assistance
Some companies or schools will pay the tuition for their employee to take a course or program. Please contact a representative within your company or school district to learn more about this benefit.
Here’s How it Works:
For an individual course, enroll by clicking the “Enroll” button on the course description page. On the payment page, select tuition assistance as your method of payment. Your enrollment will be placed in a pending state and you will receive an order confirmation via email.
For certificate programs, if your tuition assistance covers both tuition and fees, send the paperwork along with your selected program, and the first course you wish to take to the Continuing Education Registrar.
If you are enrolling in a certificate program and your tuition assistance does not cover the registration and technology fee, enroll in the program you are interested in by clicking the Enroll button on the certificate description page. In this case, you will need to pay the registration and technology fee to complete the enrollment process. Once you have completed the transaction, you will receive an order confirmation via email.
Please note: Tuition assistance can only be used for tuition and registration fees. Tuition assistance cannot be used for books or required software.
In addition to a tuition assistance form, a purchase order from a school or employer may be accepted. The tuition assistance form or purchase order needs to include the following items:
- Student’s name
- Course or courses covered
- Tuition amount covered
- Term and dates covered
- Name and address where invoices will be sent
- Student signature if applicable
Tuition assistance forms can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, faxed to 617-747-2149 or mailed to:
1140 Boylston Street
Boston, MA 02215
Attn: Finance Department
These forms must be received by the end of the enrollment period of the upcoming term. After reviewing the forms submitted, if they are approved, the amount the employer is paying will be applied to the tuition and fees due. If there is a balance remaining the student will be responsible for paying this amount prior to the start of the course. Once this balance is paid, you will be officially enrolled in the course. You will receive an email that your enrollment has been approved.
The student will be responsible for any approved amount that is not paid by their employer. Student services could be suspended for failure to pay tuition in a timely manner.
Questions should be sent to the Finance Department at email@example.com. We are also available to help you by telephone at 1-866-BERKLEE or 1-617-747-2146 if outside the U.S., Monday Through Friday, 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m., U.S. Eastern Time.
