Tuition Reimbursement

If your employer reimburses you for tuition at the end of each term, you may be eligible for a Tuition Reimbursement deferment.  You may also be interested in reading about other types of 3rd Party Payment.

Requirements for participation in the Tuition Reimbursement program:

  • Your supervisor or personnel officer must write a memo on company stationery stating that you are employed by that company and will be reimbursed for tuition at the end of the term. A new letter is required each semester.
  • You are required to pay 25% of your tuition plus 100% of all fees, including lab fees, plus a non-refundable service charge of four percent of the deferred amount. The balance of your tuition will be deferred until January 25 for fall terms and April 25 for spring terms. Interest is not charged during the deferment period. If your account is not paid in full when due, it will be subject to additional finance charges.
  • You will be required to sign a promissory note in order to receive the deferment. If you do not pay for the deferment by the due date, collection efforts will proceed against you, not your employer. Failure to complete the class or your termination from the company from which you expect to receive tuition reimbursement in no way nullifies this agreement. You are responsible for paying the deferment regardless of your grade(s) or employment status.
  • You must contact Student Financial Services for a promissory note. And also provide the completed data sheet, Promissory Note and the letter from your employer to Student Financial Services prior to the settlement deadline. In order to apply for a Tuition Reimbursement deferment, please contact Student Financial Services at 213-740-4077, or, or in person at PSB-100 to request these documents.  See the Schedule of Classes for deadlines and additional settlement information.
