Payment Options for Your Education

We are flexible when working with individuals to ensure ease of payment in a variety of situations. The most common methods of payment are described below.

Employer Reimbursement 

If your company will pay for your continuing education, get approval from them for the specific program(s) you want to attend. You can register for the program and either pay for the program on your company card, with a PO request and check from your company, or pay with your own funds and file for reimbursement. Those are the most common methods of company payment, but be sure to talk to your supervisor or HR department to find out the specifics in your company.

Tax benefit:* If you receive educational benefits from your employer, you can exclude up to $5,250 each year from your taxes. Schooling that is job related does not count against the $5,250 cap. Educational assistance of less than this amount should not be included in your compensation statement received from your employer (IRS, p970/ch11).

Personal Investment 

In order to move ahead in your career you may need to invest in professional development. Think of this as an investment because it will open up new opportunities for you now and in the future.

Tax benefit:* The IRS offers a Lifetime learning credit which covers continuing education courses taken by employees for a 20% credit on up to $10,000 of tuition in one year [Subject to certain limits.] (IRS, p970/ch03).

Workforce Development Centers

Layoffs and cut-backs in companies across the country can be disheartening. However, people can take advantage of government funded programs through Workforce Development Centers to enroll in professional development programs. Some job transitioners use this opportunity to refine their skills in a familiar area, while others choose to learn a new skill set that can make them more marketable to potential employers.

We have experience working with these centers and try to make the process as easy as possible for you. First, meet with a counselor in a workforce development center to determine what will be of the most benefit to you and your professional development and get their approval to take a program. Next, call us and let us know you are working with one of these centers. Your counselor will then send us their official authorization and payment directly.

If you need to cancel, please call our office at least five working days before the beginning of the program to avoid a 10 percent processing fee.
