Are there US Dept of Education employees on this site who can provide some insight on whether the Department offers tuition reimbursement (for continuing education classes, grad school) for their employees? I tried researching it through the www.ed.gov website but am only finding information on student loans, federal grants, etc. for the general public.

tuition assistance/reimbursement is up to the department hq. student loan reimbursement, is probably not going to happen...unless your part of the good 'ole boy crew...OR, until the economy recovers.

Every Agency can offer it. Whether they choose to, is up to them. I suggest you check with your HR dept. for your Agency's procedures. The SF-182 is normally completed first. It is used for any kind of training or classes. You should get it approved before taking the class.

I was just curious. I applied for a job with the US Dept of Education, and was wondering if they offer tuition reimbursement since it is the Dept of Education. I could ask the hiring manager if I land an interview with them, but for now, it is a little premature. My current agency offers $2,000 year for continuing education. big mama2014-03-18 09:17:06

Yes, the Department of Education offers tuition reimbursement. Each office within the Department can budget for a certain amount to provide employees as a retention tool. There is also a centrally-managed tuition reimbursement program where you can apply for reimbursement in a competitive process (only a certain number are selected to receive reimbursement after a panel review of your application). Hope this helps.

Anyone who is currently working for DoD and in an Acquisition billeted position(DAWIA), can request Tuition Assistance for up to $10,000.00 per fiscal year from the following:

https://www.atrrs.army.m...ublic/DODConsentForm.htm
~Agree to Terms
~Login with CAC
~Manage Career
~Tuition Assistance
~Manage EDP

You can only use this for one (1) degree or certification, so choose carefully.

Thanks, but this information is for DoD. I was specifically asking for tuition reimbursement for DofEd employees. They are not the same.
