Tuition Assistance Program
The City of Lynchburg offers the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) to eligible employees for coursework toward a college degree, professional certification, or developmental training, to support the City’s goal of attracting and retaining a qualified workforce. TAP encourages and enables employees to increase their knowledge and skill as it relates to their work.
Full-time employees who have completed one year of continuous satisfactory service with the City may apply for tuition assistance. Part-time employees who have completed either two years of continuous service or have worked the equivalent hours of a full-time position (2080 hours) whichever occurs first, may also request tuition assistance. Check out the full policy.
Application Rules for the Program
HR will accept requests for tuition assistance when eligible employees register for a class(es) or course(s) throughout the year, rather than only once a year which required projecting classes.
Call Human Resources at 455-4200.

1. Register for your class.
2. Complete the Tuition Assistance Program Application.
3. Submit your application to HR with a copy of the registration PRIOR to the beginning of the course(s) – you’ll get a response in five or less business days after we receive your completed application.
4. Finish your class and submit the grade with the completed Grade Submission Form to HR within 30 days of the class end date.
5. Receive your reimbursement (advance payment to the school is still an option).
