The Employee Tuition Assistance Program provides reimbursement of tuition for classes taken at Duke or any other higher educational institution accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools with a physical presence in North Carolina.
This program provides reimbursement of tuition for a maximum of three classes per semester or quarter (limit nine classes per calendar year) up to $5,250 per calendar year for full-time employees with at least two years of continuous full-time service.
For more information, please see the Summary Plan Description.
To be eligible for reimbursement, Duke employees and the courses they take must meet these guidelines. Additionally, effective April 1, 2017 all employees are required to have direct deposit for reimbursement.
Requests for reimbursement must be made within 60 days following successful completion of the course.
