Tuition Assistance Program

Effective January 1, 2013, the College will offer a tuition assistance program.  

This is a reimbursement program for regular full and part-time employees with a minimum of 3 years of service who are pursuing either a first Associate's or Bachelor’s Degree (some certificate programs may also qualify).

Courses must be taken from an accredited instituion of higher education.  Online courses are not eligible.  Employees are eligible for up to $500 per semester for a maximum of 8 semesters.  At the conclusion of each course the employee must provide proof of payment and proof of grade for reimbursement.

The Maine Development Foundation (MDF) began a Maine Employers' Initiative (which Bowdoin joined) that encouraged all Maine people to strive to enhance their education.  The MDF encouraged employers to participate so that their employees could avail themselves of discounts that are being provided by member institutions.  While graduate programs are not eligible for the tuition reimbursement benefit, employees can avail themselves of the discounts provided by the Institutions who participate in this initiative.  For example, Bowdoin employees and their family members are eligible to receive MDF partner preferred tuition rates for undergraduate and graduate coursework at New England College of Business and Finance (NECB) , although their online courses are not eligible for the College's tuition assistance program.
