Educational Assistance Program
Baptist Health believes that employees should be given every opportunity to increase their knowledge and skills in order to contribute more effectively to the system. Therefore, as part of the employee education program, Baptist Health will provide a portion of an employee's tuition for classes.
Tuition assistance is available to all regular employees who have completed six months of continuous employment prior to the date on which an approved course begins. Assistance to part-time employees will be prorated based on their standard scheduled bi-weekly work hours at the time of enrollment.
Tuition assistance is limited to a set maximum amount per fiscal year for full-time employees and prorated for part time employees. Employees are eligible for reimbursement for courses taken that are related to the employee's work or designed to prepare the employee for increased opportunities within the system (i.e., most healthcare occupations), and taken at any accredited school, college, or university that is approved by the Educational Assistance Committee.
Employees must apply for educational assistance by submitting an "Educational Assistance Program" application to their immediate supervisor no later than two weeks after the start of a class. Applications may be obtained from any human resources or education office.
