An Investigation of the Number of Students Receiving Corporate Tuition Reimbursement in Eleven Sections of Introduction to Business 460-108 at Cuyahoga Community College, Metropolitan Campus.
Lidstrom, Kermit
During the winter quarter of 1975, the Metropolitan Campus of Cuyahoga Community College offered 11 sections of Business 460-108, the prerequisite course for all other courses in the business curriculum. Of these 11 sections, 6 were day sections, 4 were evening sections, and 1 was a Saturday section. Following a review of the literature pertaining to corporate financing of employee education at community colleges, the author describes the results of a study of all 11 sections which he conducted to ascertain the number of students receiving corporate tuition reimbursement. Of the 503 students surveyed, 39 (8 percent) were receiving tuition reimbursement from 29 corporations. The average for day sections was 2 percent, and the average for evening and Saturday sections was 15 percent. Approximately the same number of male and female, married and unmarried, students received reimbursement. There is a tendency to move from partial payment to full payment of tuition. About 50 percent of the plans include payment for textbooks as well as full tuition. The author recommends a comprehensive plan for attracting and providing services for students receiving corporate tuition reimbursement as a means of boosting college enrollments and income. (DC)
