CITY OF MILWAUKEE TUITION BENEFIT PROGRAM

  • All eligible employees must apply for reimbursement online via employee self-service.
  • The self-service online application is only to be used for the reimbursement of tuition paid out-of-pocket by the employee. In cases where a department paid a registration "upfront," a tuition benefit application should not be completed.
  • The information on this page is not for MPS employees. 

The City provides a tuition benefit (reimbursement) program to help employees do their present job more effectively and to prepare for promotional and transfer opportunities within City of Milwaukee government. The amount of tuition available depends upon the particular union or employee group to which an employee belongs. Most full-time employees are eligible for up to $1200 per calendar for tuition and required textbooks, and most employees are eligible to begin using their tuition benefit for classes that start immediately after their employment begins.

To qualify for reimbursement, courses must be directly related to your present position OR to a reasonable promotional/transfer opportunity within City of Milwaukee government (not including MPS). If pursuing a college degree, your “major” must be directly related to your present position or to a reasonable promotional/transfer opportunity within City of Milwaukee government (not including MPS).
