Bargaining Unit Member

Enhanced Tuition Assistance Benefits Coming Soon!

The listed tuition assistance benefits and terms apply through the 2022 spring and summer sessions.  Starting with the 2022 fall semester, the university has enhanced its tuition benefits. Click here for details.

The Tuition Reimbursement Plan for Bargaining Unit Members covers undergraduate credit and non-credit courses not available through the university for career development.


If you are a bargaining unit member, you become eligible for this benefit once you have completed 90 calendar days of full-time employment and continue in a full-time position.

About the Plan

Reimbursement will be made for 100% of tuition for courses taken outside JHU that are not available through the university. The courses must promote or enhance your career development. You must obtain university approval prior to taking a course. Courses taken for academic credit must be successfully completed with a grade of “C” or above; non-credit courses require proof of attendance. Audited courses are not eligible for reimbursement.

The maximum reimbursement is $2,000 per calendar year for both credit and non-credit courses. If you also participate in the Tuition Remission Plan, use your benefits wisely, as the combined reimbursement you may receive from both of these plans is $5,250.

To Participate

After you complete the eligible course, fill out and return the Tuition Reimbursement Plan Application For Bargaining Unit Members to the Benefits Service Center along with copies of your tuition and fees, receipt and grade report(s). If the course is non-credit, you will need to provide proof of successful completion (attendance). Submit reimbursement requests within 12 months of course completion. The Benefits Service Center will review and approve reimbursement for all eligible costs, and payment will be made directly into your paycheck.

Please do not return your completed application by fax as the Benefits Service Center team is working remotely.  Email form to .
