Tuition Remission renewal for 2016-17 school year underway
The program, now in its 16th year, was initiated to help human service employees gain access to college classes to help advance their careers in the sector. Since it began in 2000, more than 3,500 workers have attended more than 20,000 classes tuition-free at Massachusetts state colleges.
Eligible human services employees of participating organizations can use tuition remission toward undergraduate, state-supported, weekday day-time classes at state colleges and universities. To take part, the employee fills out a Certificate of Eligibility for each class they would like to take. The certificate must be signed by human resources and an executive at their agency and submitted to the Providers' Council for processing. Once the certificate has been processed by the Council, the employee brings it to the school's bursar's office in lieu of tuition for the specified class.
