The Wake Tech Foundation's Employee Tuition Assistance (ETA) program proudly supports faculty and staff in advancing their education and career skills. Eligible employees may receive up to $3,000 per academic year (Fall, Spring, Summer). That total may be requested in one term or spread out over the academic year.
NOTE: The ETA covers tuition costs only. Student fees, books, etc., are ineligible for reimbursement.
NOTE: ETA recipients who voluntarily leave Wake Tech must repay the Foundation the total amount received during the academic year prior to their separation date. This amount will be withheld from the employee's final paycheck.
Employees taking a Wake Tech course must first use the college's Tuition Exemption benefit, which offers one free course* per semester to employees. Contact Human Resources for more information. If you are taking more than one Wake Tech course, use the Tuition Exemption benefit first, then apply for ETA for the remaining course(s).
*The college's benefit does not cover self-supporting classes, which charge fees instead of tuition. Apply for ETA if you are taking a Wake Tech self-supporting course.
