Amazon employees around the U.S., including Texas, can now attend select colleges and universities with college tuition fully funded as part of Amazon’s Career Choice partnerships.
Tarrant County College joins eight other Texas colleges and universities in the upskilling program designed to help employees grow their skills for career success at Amazon or elsewhere, according to an Amazon news release.
The Career Choice program offers fully funded college tuition and allows employees to participate every year they work at Amazon. Employees are eligible for the program after 90 days of employment.
“Tarrant County College is proud to be a part of the Amazon Career Choice Network,” said TCC Acting Chancellor Elva LeBlanc. “This is a wonderful opportunity for TCC students and for Amazon employees to pursue and attain their educational goals. We expect this partnership to pay big dividends to the regional economy for years to come.”
Additionally, Amazon will fully fund tuition for workers who go to Alamo College, Austin Community College, Dallas College, Houston Community College, Lone Star College, University of Texas at Dallas and University of North Texas.
Workers can take classes online, in-person or on-site in a Career Choice classroom located in fulfillment centers in 37 states. Career Choice is part of Amazon’s Upskilling 2025 pledge, which is a $1.2 billion commitment to upskilling more than 300,000 employees by 2025.
