UCF has been added to the educational program partner list of multiple Fortune 1000 companies to help make obtaining a college degree a little more affordable.

If you are a UCF student who is employed by one of these companies, you may be eligible for tuition assistance depending on your academic major. Companies include:

  • Bon Secours Mercy Health
  • Chipotle
  • Discover
  • Taco Bell
  • Target
  • Waste Management

Academic programs are selected for and by employers based on the employer policy, strategy, and career paths they have set for their employee base. Learn more about our employment partnership programs and see if you’re eligible.

Students employed by the companies are also encouraged to contact the Human Resources department at their place of employment and ask about Guild’s university partners program.

The partnerships were facilitated by Guild Education. Guild’s industry-leading technology platform allows the nation’s largest employers to offer strategic education and upskilling to their employees. Guild connects workers to a learning marketplace of the nation’s best learning partners for working adults with tuition paid by the company. Guild’s payments and technology platform, curated learning marketplace, and advanced education and career services come together to help working adult learners advance in their education and career, debt-free.

These new partner programs expand beyond other successful employer programs UCF is affiliated with, including the popular Disney Aspire program. Aspire offers eligible Disney employees and Cast Members the opportunity to receive tuition benefits across a number of programs and partner schools, including UCF, who joined the network in 2019.

UCF was recently recognized as one of the nation’s most innovative universities and best value schools by U.S. News and World Report.
