HR offers tips for employees interested in dependent tuition assistance program for enrollment at WVU

Thursday, April 26, 2018

WVU Medicine Human Resources recently kicked off the dependent tuition assistance program by providing WVU Medicine employees with steps to begin uploading the required documents into UltiPro for their eligible dependents attending WVU in the fall. For employees with dependents attending another college or university, additional information for the tuition reimbursement process will be provided in July.

The WVU student application period will be April 16-27. It is important that employees gather the required documents now (see below) and upload them into UltiPro before the end of the application period. Employees will be able to upload the documents during the application period, however, it is best to upload these documents before the application period opens.

On April 16, Human Resources will post a video with step-by-step instructions for the application process on http://hr.wvumedicine.org.

Please note: Human Resources will update employees on the status of their application through their WVU Medicine email.
