Educational Assistance Benefits
UMMC provides employees with two types of educational assistance: tuition reimbursement and continuing education.
Eligible full-time and part-time employees may receive tuition reimbursement for undergraduate or graduate courses related to their current job or a hospital-related position. Full-time employees can receive 100% reimbursement (up to the maximum reimbursement amounts) for the tuition cost for courses taken at the University of Maryland, other state universities and/or community colleges, and 75% reimbursement for courses taken at all other colleges and universities. The maximum reimbursement for full-time employees is $5,000 per calendar year for graduate courses and $3,000 per calendar year for undergraduate courses. Full-time employees attending the University of Maryland School of Nursing are entitled to a maximum tuition payment of $10,000 per calendar year for graduate courses and $6,000 per calendar year for undergraduate courses. The calendar year maximum reimbursement is pro-rated for eligible part-time employees.
Eligible full-time and part-time employees can receive payment of registration and application fees for job-related conferences and seminars, advanced certification review courses, advanced certification examinations, reference books directly related to their current job position, professional membership dues, and courses that offer continuing education units (CEUs). The maximum annual benefit is $500 for eligible full-time employees and $250 for eligible part-time employees.
