ENG 302: Business Writing
Positive Announcement/Announcing a Tuition Reimbursement

Assignment Overview:
In a 1 page business memo that follows the guidelines listed in the power point “Writing Effective Business Memos,” you will inform employees of your organization about a new Tuition Reimbursement program. Assume that you are the Human Resources Manager of that organization. You can make up the name of the organization.

Assignment Description/Scenario: Your organization has decided to encourage employees to take courses by reimbursing each eligible employee a maximum of $3,500 in tuition and fees during any one calendar year. Anyone who wants to participate in the program must apply before the first class meeting; the application must be signed by the employee’s immediate supervisor. The Office of Human Resources will evaluate applications. That office has application forms.

The only courses eligible are those that are related to the employee’s current position or to a position in the company that the employee might hold someday, or that are part of a job-related degree program. Again, the degree may be one that would help the employee’s current position or that would qualify him or her for a promotion or transfer in the organization.

Only tuition and fees are covered, not books or supplies. People whose applications are approved will be reimbursed when they have completed the course with a grade of C or better. An employee cannot be reimbursed until he or she submits a copy of the approved application, an official grade report, and a statement of the tuition paid. If someone is eligible for other financial aid (scholarship, veterans’ benefits), the company will pay tuition costs not covered by that aid as long as the employee does not receive more than $3,500 and as long as the total tuition reimbursement does not exceed the actual cost of tuition and fees.
