What you need to know
Further your education—on us! When you take classes and developmental programs for your current role (or a likely future role), you can get reimbursed through the Educational Assistance Program. Receive up to MXN 35,000 each calendar year after successfully completing a professional certification and/or degree program to pay for tuition, books, and lab expenses.
Get your manager’s approval first
Eligible employees will receive a contribution from PayPal each calendar year toward the cost of tuition, books, and lab expenses. Just get your course approved by your manager before you enroll, and successfully complete your exams.
What else to know
You must be employed with PayPal for at least 1 year before you can apply.
Your performance must meet business goals or go beyond those goals.
You must not be on any disciplinary path at any time during the process.
Your application must be completed and discussed with your team leader and manager.
The courses you take must be integrated into your personal development plan (PDP).
The academic program must have a direct relevance to your current or a future role in the short term.

What to do before you apply
Once you’ve researched and decided on a course of study, you may be ready to apply for education reimbursement. Be sure review all available information in the HR Hub (this page is only accessible within PayPal firewall) and take these steps before you apply:
- Review the full policy and associated criteria.
- Complete the Educational Assistance Request form, and discuss your plans with your manager and team leader.
- Update your personal development plan (PDP) to reflect your participation in an educational program.
Be sure to retain original copies of payment receipts.
Once you successfully complete the course or complete an essential part of the course, submit the following documents to HR Hub:
