What are Gap Inc.'s Tuition Reimbursement Program Benefits?
Continuing your education is important all through life. Gap Inc.'s Tuition Reimbursement Program supports your continued education and advancement with the Company by reimbursing you when you take courses that are relevant to your current job or immediate career growth.
The program reimburses the following for approved courses, up to a maximum of $5,000 per calendar year:
While courses eligible for reimbursement depend on where you work, your position and your career path, some previously approved course subjects include business management, human resources, business writing, conflict resolution, fashion and visual merchandising, store design and merchandise marketing. Courses must be taken at regionally or nationally accredited institutions to be eligible for reimbursement.
Who is eligible?
You're eligible to participate if you are classified as a full-time employee in good standing and have completed one full year of service before the school term (quarter, semester, etc.) starts. You must also not be on a Leave of Absence at the time the course begins or when you submit your grades for reimbursement. There will be no exceptions. Employees who are rehired within 12 months after they leave the company, will have their length of service bridged. Also, to be reimbursed for courses, you must pass with a letter grade of "C" or better (or, "pass" for courses taken on a pass/fail basis).
When can I take advantage of this benefit?
You can take advantage of this benefit after you complete one full year of service.

Some schools have a program in which you can defer payment due to an employer paid tuition reimbursement program. Otherwise, you will be responsible for any tuition, fees and books that the plan does not cover. The limit per year is $5,000.
