Reimbursement requests must be submitted within 30 days of course completion or your application will be closed and no longer eligible for reimbursement.
Failure to complete the course, or if you receive a grade of "C" for an undergraduate course, or a "B" for a graduate course will also require repayment. You must notify HR immediately if you withdraw or fail a course or exam. This amount will immediately be recouped from your paycheck.
Participants must agree to remain at NHRMC for two years following reimbursement. If you terminate employment (either voluntary or involuntary) you will be required to repay the medical center as follows:
- The full amount of tuition assistance paid to employee in any of the 12 months preceding their termination date and/or
- Half of the full amount of tuition assistance paid to the employee in any of the 13-24 month period preceding their termination date.
Tuition Assistance benefits will be credited to the calendar year in which the course was completed.
Benefits will notify you by email when your reimbursement has been processed and when to expect the reimbursement / advancement in your scheduled paycheck.
By accepting Tuition Assistance, an employee expressly authorizes NHRMC to withhold an repayment amounts from any amounts owed to the employee (including, but not limited to the employee's paycheck or unused accrued PDO.) If the employee fails to make any required repayment and the Medical Center takes action to recover the repayment obligation, the employee agrees to pay the fees incurred by NHRMC in pursuing recovery.
This service payback requirement is not an employment contract and does not obligate NHRMC to provide continued employment to any person.
Tuition Assistance is considered taxable income for undergraduate and graduate programs in excess of $5,250 annually, as determined by Internal Revenue Service (IRS) guidelines.
Tuition Assistance is distributed in your scheduled paycheck tax-free.
