Sooner or later, you'll have to take a stand.

Triple check that your center/hub actually supports this!
Whatever HR told you is a lie.

And not all centers do tuition reimbursement. I know that mine does not. May or may not be contractually stated for some locals, I don't know.

Get management's answer in writing, if possible.

My center supports it. Its a huge hub that supports a couple thousand students locally. But I will triple check to make sure. Never know. Thanks for the replies.

Mine only gives tuition reimbursement to sups not hourlies

What does degree seeking mean? Isn't why you go to college?

In a degree program as opposed to general education enrollment with no specified program ex: psychology, accounting is degree seeking, or you can enroll under gen ed and take whatever courses you want. Most financial aid/grants only support if you have a specific major declared

Some people get around the college admission process by registering for a class as "non-matriculating". It still counts though, and you can sometimes switch later, and you're admitted to college.

That said, UPS doesn't want to pay for someone who just has a strong interest in basket weaving and wants to take a class to "edify oneself"

Isn't that class a qualification for being a part time sup?

i was thinking more along the lines of an undergrad certificate. But your post made me laugh. Thanks for the reply.

I don't get it either. On their website it does not say much. Then I found another website that said you had to work 225 hours in 3 months in order to qualify for the tuition program.
