UTMB is increasing the educational assistance available through its Tuition Reimbursement Program to help employees with their professional mobility.

Effective Sept. 1, 2021, the maximum reimbursement amount will be $5,250 per fiscal year for course credits and related fees from nationally accredited colleges and universities.

To be eligible for this tax-free program, employees must:

  • Be pursuing an undergraduate degree, a graduate degree or a doctoral degree required of any position at UTMB
  • Work 30 hours or more per week
  • Have completed six months of employment at UTMB
  • Be in good standing and not have been subject to disciplinary action (written warning or higher) within the last 12 months

Employees interested in the program will need to complete an application and sign an agreement asserting they will remain in the employment of UTMB for a period of time after the completion of each semester/course that is proportionate to the period of time they received educational assistance.
