Tuition Waivers: Employees and family members

Earn and learn at University of Phoenix! We provide a very generous program to our full-time and part-time employees that waives tuition for covered University coursework. All eligible family members can earn a Phoenix degree and become members of our Phoenix alumni, which is nearly 1,000,000 people strong.

Healthy body. Healthy mind.

Our employees have identified our benefits as one of the top things that make us a great place to work! We offer a wide range of coverage options through our Healthcare Exchange so you have the medical, dental, and vision choices to make smart and cost-effective healthcare decisions.

We care about keeping your healthcare costs to a minimum, which is why we offer Health Spending Accounts (HSAs) and/or Flexible Spending Accounts. (FSAs). These accounts offset out-of-pocket expenses by enabling you to pay with pre-tax dollars.

Saving for retirement

Our 401(k) plan comes with a generous company match. As a newly hired employee, you are automatically enrolled in our plan at a contribution rate of 5%. We also offer a variety of low-expense investments and both pre-tax 401(k) and post-tax Roth 401(k) options.

Your “Me Time”

Spend time with family, rest and recharge, or attend to personal and family matters! Our generous time off program includes vacation, holidays, sick time, bereavement time, jury duty, leave of absence, and time off to vote or to participate in your children’s school activities. We even offer employees up to 16 hours annually to volunteer in community charity events.

Paid Community Service Leave

We believe giving back to our communities is both a privilege and an honor. That’s why we give our employees 16 hours of paid Community Service Leave time each year to volunteer for causes important to them. The University also sponsors a range of annual fund-raising and volunteer events. In 2017, our employees logged nearly 37,000 volunteer hours.


Having a tuition waiver program has been an amazing benefit for me and so many people I know. It's worth its weight in gold.


Balance and well-being for you and your family is supported through our Employee Assistance Program (EAP), which provides resources for personal and work-related issues to help you be your best at work and at home. Our EAP is provided at no charge and is available to you 24/7 by telephone. This confidential program can provide the needed support for navigating life’s challenges.


Family is priceless and that’s why we support adoptive parents. We offer financial assistance up to $5,000 per adoption to help offset legal and court costs, adoption agency fees and any applicable travel expenses.

We also give you the option to purchase additional short-term and long-term disability coverage as well as AD&D or Long Term Care insurance coverage.


Taking care of you.
