Furthering the education of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) employees benefits our workforce and our mission. The CBP Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) enhances educational opportunities for CBP employees through the reimbursement of eligible tuition-related expenses, and demonstrates the agency’s commitment to life-long learning, employee development, and the attainment of employees' educational goals.
Some highlights of TAP include:
- Coverage of eligible tuition and associated fees and book expenses, up to $1,500 per course and $4,500 per employee per calendar year
- Approval for courses at all accredited universities and colleges, for classroom or online instruction
- Available for all courses leading to professional certification or any type of degree, undergraduate or graduate
This program, from the Office of Training and Development, is competitive with today’s employment environment. The military has used educational benefits as a prime employee benefit for decades. TAP offers more compensation than many Department of Homeland Security agencies and it exceeds employee education incentives from some of the country’s largest corporations.
CBP supports life-long learning and employee development. Consider the impact the TAP could have on your educational goals and career. Capitalize on your TAP benefits now!
