Tuition Assistance

(for full-time employees)

Regular full‐time employees who have completed at least one year of service are eligible for financial assistance for tuition, books, registration and similar fees for completion of approved education/training.

To Qualify:

  • The employee has received advance written approval from the President/CEO and funds have been reserved for this education/training.

  • The employee passes the education/training program with a grade of "C" (or its numerical equivalent) or better, if letter grades are given.

  • In accordance with lRS code section 127, reimbursement for postgraduate college education will be considered taxable income to the employee.

  • Upon completion of the course, the employee shall submit to the President/CEO a certified transcript of grades received.

  • Class attendance and completion of study assignments shall be accomplished outside of the employee's regular working hours, except for required education/training. Course attendance shall not require disruptive rescheduling of other employees to accommodate attendance. It is expected that educational activities will not interfere with the employee's work and unsatisfactory job performance during enrollment may result in termination of employment.

  • Any employee who voluntarily leaves the Airport Authority or is terminated for cause prior to completing a course shall reimburse the Airport Authority for the expenses associated with the course. Such expenses may be deducted from the employee's paycheck.

  • Records will be maintained in each employee's personnel file for all educational training programs completed.

  • An employee who does not satisfactorily complete required or elective training shall return any advance payment received. Additionally, an employee who does not complete required job-related training may also be subject to disciplinary action as provided in this policy.


Related Education/Training Expense Reimbursement​:

  • The employee shall be compensated for travel expenses in accordance with the MAA Travel Policy.
