Reimbursement or Voucher Payments
If your application is accepted, we will determine if you are eligible for either a reimbursement payment program or a voucher payment program. This decision is based on several factors, including the school you are attending and grades you earn. Reimbursement students will receive a repayment of tuition and fees paid up front by the student. Voucher students will have payments submitted directly to the school on their behalf.
In order to be eligible for Tuition Assistance, you must be employed as a Home Care Attendant by one of the employers below. You must have been employed in your position for 4 months prior to the deadline of your first application. Applicants must also work and maintain an average of at least 15 hours per week throughout the program to continue eligibility.
