Tuition Reimbursement Program

An educational assistance program is available to benefits-eligible employees who have completed at least 1,000 hours of continuous employment at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. The program pays tuition and lab fees after satisfactory completion of approved course work. Annual reimbursement limits are $3,500 for undergraduate students and $4,000 for graduate students. Reimbursement for part-time employees is pro-rated according to FTE status at the beginning of the term. Employees receiving tuition assistance are obligated to continue their employment at the same or greater level of hours for up to one year after the end of the most recent term.
