Tuition Reimbursement and Scholarships

At Humber, we help make learning affordable by providing access to tuition reimbursement and scholarship awards for postsecondary degrees, graduate and doctoral programs.

While Humber recognizes that employees bear the primary responsibility for undertaking continuous professional improvement in knowledge and skills, the College supports this through a variety of programs and instruments through which employees can access professional development programs.

Humber’s Professional Development Policy covers access to programs and instruments supporting professional development available internally through programs offered by the Organizational Effectiveness Department, Innovative Learning, and the Office of the Registrar.

Tuition assistance is available to employees where Humber provides financial assistance for certificate, diploma, degree, doctoral programs and/or professional association courses taken at an accredited post-secondary institution or professional association.
