Corporate Tuition Assistance
Employers recognize the immediate benefit that continuing employee education, training and development provide to an organization. Many companies provide corporate tuition assistance program benefits that cover per-credit-hour costs and may cover books and materials. Contact your employer's Human Resources department to find out if they offer tuition assistance or reimbursement.
USF's online programs accept all major credit cards. For your convenience, there are several interest-free payment options available that separate tuition and materials fees into three payments over each term.
