Each person considering earning an advanced degree has their own motivations: promotions, higher salaries, expanding their skills and knowledge and gaining respect and credibility in the office. Even if their reasons for pursuing a master’s degree differ, each potential candidate likely shares the same question: How will I pay for graduate school?

The good news is that many employers are willing to offer tuition reimbursement, or have tuition assistance programs in place, that can help with the cost of your graduate education. A 2017 World at Work survey found that 92 percent of U.S. companies offer some form of tuition reimbursement, but the average employee participation in these tuition assistance programs was only around 5 percent.1 If you’d like to utilize this largely untapped resource, download our tuition reimbursement guide.
