Learning keeps our minds and career skills sharp. Whether it’s going back to college to get a degree or taking external courses related to your job, Seagate offers financial assistance to continue your education. You’ll also find resources for helping your child pay for college.
If you have been with Seagate at least six months and are regularly scheduled to work 24 hours each week, you are eligible for degree assistance.
Seagate provides up to $7,500 to help you cover the cost of tuition, books and other qualified expenses. The degree program must be relevant to your work and approved by your manager.
After you and your manager have had a discussion about creating a learning plan, the impact on your work schedule, and how you’ll apply what you learn to your role at Seagate, you will need to submit an application (HR Services > Performance, Learning and Career > Apply for Degree Assistance).
Non-degree external courses are any classes, courses or modules for which you don’t receive a degree or diploma upon completion—and that Seagate helps pay for. To participate, you’ll need to create a learning plan to share with your manager.
Certification: Individual course or courses where, upon completion, the employee receives a certificate
External courses or seminars: Individual college or university courses or seminars that are not part of a diploma or university degree program and whose stated purpose is that, once completed, do not lead to a degree/diploma
Examination for recertification/credential: Examination for a professional or technical recertification/recredential, only if required by Seagate or required by law
How to Get Reimbursed
The reimbursement method depends on whether your manager has you pay or has Seagate pay.
