What We Do

Tuition Assistance

Returning Students:

Here is the Tuition Assistance Application to apply for your next term!

BIG NEWS!! The Wait Is Over!

You asked, we answered. Our participants wanted faster, easier access to our Tuition Assistance benefit, and we made a BIG change to our eligibility policy. Now full and part time employees don't have to wait a full year to access the $5,000 per year for school. We lowered the waiting period to only FOUR MONTHS. 

“The Tuition Assistance program opened up a lot of doors for me. It helped me get the schooling and training to enhance my life and skills.”

--Tory Lewis, LPN

How Am I Going to Pay for School?

Juggling a full-time job and family responsibilities can make it challenging to return to school. Our Tuition Assistance program helps relieve the financial burden of school so you can focus on your studies, your family, your job, and other responsibilities.


Go here for more specifics on eligibility.

In short, you must be working in a union position represented by SEIU Healthcare PA and have the Training and Education Fund benefits in your union contract in order to receive our Tuition Assistance benefit. If you're not sure, or would like more information, please call the union's Member Resource Center at 1-800-252-3894.

About your Tuition Assistance Benefit:

  • We provide up to $2000 per term (Semester, Level, or Quarter) for tuition, fees and 50% of required books and supplies.
  • The maximum benefit is $5000 per calendar year.
  • You can choose any course of study, not just healthcare.
