Eligible employees have the opportunity to enhance their education by attending classes at the university with the intent of receiving a college degree or by attending classes that are related to their job assignment. In the event that an employee does not enroll for credit hours in a given semester, the program allows the employee’s dependent or spouse the opportunity to enhance their education by attending classes at the University, with the intent of receiving an undergraduate or graduate degree.
