Educational Assistance Programs

The Tennessee Board of Regents is committed to the need for the continued professional growth and development of employees. Providing educational assistance for personnel and their dependents is an important vehicle for addressing that need. The availability of programs for TBR employees and dependents is subject to funds being budgeted and available within the institution/technology center/central office. 

The Office of Human Resources is responsible for the administration of the various programs with the exception of the program for dependents of veterans (B-061) and two programs offered to general state employees and the dependents of licensed teachers and state employees (B-062).  Exceptions to the provisions of the programs for TBR employees can be made upon recommendation of the president/director and approval by the chancellor.
