Education Benefit Programs

Roper St. Francis Healthcare is proud of teammates who want to further their education, and we want to relieve some of the financial burden associated with that decision.

We encourage teammates to pursue additional education, and we remain committed to supporting them on that journey, whether it be through the Kaplan Purdue Global Program, the Trident Technical College Deferred Tuition Program, or another educational institution supported by RSFH’s Tuition Assistance Policy.

FAQs about continuing your education with Kaplan.

Tuition Reimbursement

Teammates may use tuition reimbursement benefits to further RSFH career opportunities through degree or certification programs.  The tuition reimbursement benefits apply to both teammates at the bedside as well as those who work in corporate services or other non-clinical roles requiring certifications.

Eligible teammates must submit a Tuition Reimbursement Form within 60 days of completing the course(s)/semester/certification.

Step 1 – Teammates must verify eligibility for Tuition Reimbursement by completing the enrollment form on Kaplan’s website ( Additionally, teammates must complete the FASFA to determine whether they are eligible for any financial aid, grants or additional education reimbursement.

Step 2 – Teammates must submit all required supporting documentation to the HR Service Center within 60 days of completing the course(s)/semester. Supporting documentation includes proof of payment and passing course grades.  Click here to submit a case for reimbursement. You will receive reimbursement within 3 weeks of submission.

In support of career path development, certification programs that meet the minimum requirements (either required or preferred) of a current RSFH position will be eligible for reimbursement (i.e., Radiology Techs, CT Techs, Certified Medical Assistant, Patient Care Technician, Phlebotomist, Surgical Technician, Corporate Services, and other non-clinical positions that require certifications).

Continuing education to maintain professional licensure or certification such as CEUs for HR certification, IT certification, RN licensure, etc. is not included.  Further, certifications for personal/professional advancement within the same position are not eligible for reimbursement under the Tuition Reimbursement Policy.  Teammates are encouraged to discuss such continuing education courses with their department manager.

Trident Tech Deferred Tuition Program

The Deferred Tuition Reimbursement Program is a partnership between RSFH and Trident Technical College which allows payment of a teammate’s tuition to be deferred until the end of a specified semester so teammates can enroll in courses without any upfront costs for tuition.

The program is good for teammates because it will consolidate all invoices into a single source for easier payment, and it makes it easier to return to school without the burden of immediate expenses.

RSFH will reimburse Trident Technical College up to the qualifying tuition assistance limits ($5,250 for Full-Time teammates per calendar year/$2,750 for Part-Time teammates per calendar year) after teammates complete their semester and Trident Tech provides RSFH with their final grade(s). Teammates will be responsible for any remaining fees.
