Tuition Reimbursement Program

UTMB’s Tuition Reimbursement Program helps employees achieve higher levels of education and improve their professional mobility. This tax-free program is open to all employees pursuing an undergraduate degree, a graduate degree or a doctoral degree from a nationally accredited college or university that will affect their ability to advance within the university, and the maximum reimbursement amount for course credits and related fees is $5,000 per fiscal year.
