We know that the cost of your education can make it challenging to earn a college degree. That’s why Archways to Opportunity offers Tuition Assistance to eligible McDonald's employees. Tuition Assistance is money to help pay for college courses that are taken at an “approved school” such as a two or four year public or private college or university; business, technical or vocational school; or graduate or post-graduate school that is accredited by the Department of Education.
The Tuition Assistance offers two different awards, based on your position. If you are a full-time store manager trainee, certified swing manager, department manager or general manager, you are eligible if you: have a performance rating of “significant performance” or better, maintained throughout the course/program; and you notify your supervisor of your participation. If you are a restaurant crewmember, floor supervisor, shift manager trainee, primary maintenance worker or other part-time employee, you are eligible if you: are employed by McDonald’s for at least 90 cumulative days; work an average of 15 hours per week or more; and have a performance rating of “significant performance” or better, maintained throughout the course/program.
