Tuition Reimbursement and Sign-On Bonuses

Several trucking companies have a tuition reimbursement program. This program is offered by the first company that hires the graduate, and is designed to pay for student loans while earning wages over time. Some trucking companies may pay for the entire loan depending on how long a graduate stays employed with that company.

Many trucking companies offer a sign-on bonus. For example, a company may pay $500 to the employee after 6 months of employment.

 Payment of tuition and fees not covered by funding agencies or scholarships is due at time of registration.
