Many agencies, organizations and businesses in Tulsa provide tuition assistance benefits to help their employees pay for higher education. This mutual benefit allows students financial assistance in completing a degree, while also providing employers with an educated workforce.

Types of education benefits for employees vary, and may include:

  • Tuition payment assistance or reimbursement.
  • Payment/reimbursement for licensing courses and exams.
  • Matched contributions to employer-sponsored 529 college savings plan.
  • Student loan repayment.

Some employers that offer educational benefit options require a minimum waiting period for eligibility, some set a maximum benefit amount, and some may extend educational benefits to employee dependents. Below is an alphabetical list of some Tulsa-area employers that offer tuition assistance benefits for employees. For more specific and comprehensive information, contact the employer directly.

If you’d like us to add your agency, business or organization to this list, complete this brief survey (opens in new window).

The Tulsa Higher Education Consortium has partnered with the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education in collecting tuition benefit information from employers.
