michelle found success with amazon’s career choice

Michelle Colby, a Health Sciences major at TCC, is taking full advantage of the Amazon Career Choice Program. After working for Amazon for a while, she decided to return to college through Amazon’s career choice opportunities.

“I appreciate that Amazon pays the tuition up front instead of a reimbursement program. It is an easy process, and Amazon pays up to $5,250 a year for full time employees. With TCC being so affordable, I haven’t had to pay anything above the max amount career choice has allotted. This has made going back to school so much more enjoyable without having to worry about how to pay for it.”
