At University of Maryland Global Campus (UMGC), we’ve made it our mission to help working adults learn new skills and build new pathways in their careers. That’s why we’re proud to participate in Amazon’s Career Choice program. Thanks to the Career Choice program, eligible Amazon employees can pursue their higher education goals at UMGC while continuing in their current positions at Amazon.

And here’s the best part: Amazon will cover 100 percent of your tuition and you’ll receive reimbursement of books and fees, up to an annual maximum with no lifetime limit.*  Plus, you'll save $50 when you apply to UMGC as a new student with our application fee waiver.

We’re determined to make sure that there’s no limit to your learning, which is why you’ll be able to take advantage of the Career Choice program for as long as you’re employed by Amazon. Plus, recently-hired employees won’t have to wait long—you can begin to take advantage of these benefits after only 90 days of employment.
