Are any of you familiar with the tuition reimbursment program.  I keep getting mixed responses regarding the amount of time you have to be employed before receiving tuition assistance.

For legal studies the requirement is to be a full time employee with at least two years of continuous service at the PTO at the time of start of the Fall semester of law school.

I'm not sure what the requirement is for technical studies, but I have a friend there who started working around January 2006, and they started paying for his masters in EE at UMCP in fall of 2006.  Maybe for technical studies there is no waiting requirement or maybe it's just another one of those things that are dependent on your SPE.

Actually I misunderstood.  The first classes they paid for him for his masters were just this spring 2007, so he said he had to wait about 1 year before they started paying for his tuition, since he started working there in early february of 2006.

Your correction sounds about right.   I believe that for technical training you just have to have 4 quarters of fully satisfactory performance (I may be using the wrong words) so you'd have to be at the PTO at least a year.
