If you stay within the annual tuition limits of the Amazon Career Choice program, then you will incur no tuition costs for the duration of your degree program. Amazon provides annual tuition assistance of up to $5,250 for full-time and $2,625 for part-time blue badge associates.

Speak with an enrollment advisor to help maximize your annual tuition benefit. Note: Your maximum tuition assistance resets each calendar year. Any tuition amount that exceeds your annual Amazon Career Choice benefit balance will be your responsibility; should you exceed your annual tuition assistance, each course thereafter is only $700.

The onsite courses are to be taken as a series and focus on general education credits, if you have transfer credits you may be retaking courses for which you have transfer credits. Please contact an enrollment advisor at 1-888-212-9402 and they will work with you to have your current credits assessed to see if the onsite program is best for your situation and for possible transfer into your program of interest.

The class will run for four weeks. Each week you will meet twice as a class for 90 minutes.

The rest of your work will be done online: this work may include readings, interactive discussions, papers, quizzes, and other learning activities.
