Online processing and new resources from EdAssist

We’ve partnered with EdAssist, a leading manager of corporate tuition assistance programs, to administer our program. Instead of processing tuition reimbursement manually, employees and supervisors will use the EdAssist website at tamsonline.org/bswh.

The system will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with live customer support Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. CT. To work with EdAssist, you'll need your employee ID number, which you can find on your paycheck on PeoplePlace.

 

In addition to administration and processing, EdAssist offers significant benefits when you want to return to school.

  • Free academic and college finance advising. You’ll get personalized help to solidify your career goals, find the best schools and target financial aid sources.
  • Discounted tuition and fees. Partnerships with more than 220 top-tier regionally accredited educational institutions enable EdAssist to offer significant tuition savings.
  • Family discounts. A number of schools in the EdAssist network offer tuition discounts to immediate family members.
