Exciting Changes to ACD Education Benefits

We are excited to announce new changes to the Education Benefit program beginning July 1, 2021 for Academic Division employees:  

  • Academic employees can now use up to $5,250 for tuition toward a degree-seeking program  
  • Professional Development benefits criteria (which includes classes, certification training, or conferences), may be job-related, career growth-related, or a developmental opportunity
  • Job Aids to walk you through the request in Workday  
  • Helpful prompts in Workday to upload documentation to substantiate your request
  • Assistance for departments when offering bulk courses to benefits-eligible employees

More information and frequently asked questions can be viewed by visiting the Education Benefits webpage. For questions, please email AskHR@virginia.edu with subject line, “Ed Benefits.”
