Tuition Program

The firm provides a generous reimbursement allowance for associates pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees in subjects that apply to potential Edward Jones career paths. In addition, reimbursement is available for professional certifications such as Certified Financial Planner, Canadian Securities Course and Professional Financial Planning.


  • You must be employed by Edward Jones as a full-time associate for the past 12 consecutive months or longer prior to the first class session.
  • You must be in Good Standing (last performance rating must be meets or above).
  • You must be actively employed in a full-time position at the time the reimbursement is made.


Branch Office Administrators: You are eligible for tuition reimbursement for academic courses. The CSC and CPH are approved but you are not able to pursue professional designations. This is because use of the knowledge and skills acquired through these professional designations cannot be practically applied in the BOA position due to regulatory and compliance restrictions.

Home-office Associates and Financial Advisors: You are eligible for tuition reimbursement for academic courses. Attainment of the professional designation must be strongly recommended for your current position. If the designation is required for the position, please see your leader.

Get Started

First, review the Academic Course Guidelines or the Professional Designation Guidelines. Then, begin the application process by visiting the EdAssist website or call EdAssist at 866-286-1016.
