• Reimbursements & Financial Assistance

  • STEP UP and TEACH members may receive up to $8,000 annually and BOOST members may receive up to $4,500 annually in financial assistance for education and credential related expenses. Financial assistance is provided as reimbursement for out-of-pocket or direct pay expenses, including expenditures paid through a student loan. Except when indicated, expenses covered by a scholarship, grant or fee waiver are not reimbursable. Approved reimbursement funds are paid through the member's pay warrant. Please allow 6-8 weeks for processing and disbursement.

    To qualify for tuition and/or textbook reimbursement, all coursework must be completed at a regionally accredited college or university. Tuition will be reimbursed for courses passed with a grade of B- or better. The reimbursable amount is calculated by qualifying semester units and enrollment type (see chart below).
