*This offer is only valid for eligible full-time employees of PepsiCo. This offer is not a guarantee that all candidates eligible for the offer will be granted acceptance or admission into Walden.

The Employee Scholars Program is available to PepsiCo employees who enroll in the program by completing a form through their employer. All candidates must be enrolled in the PepsiCo Employee Scholars Program to receive this benefit. The tuition benefit cannot be used by a student in combination with any other tuition reduction benefit.
Through the Employee Scholars Program, eligible full-time employees of PepsiCo are eligible to receive tuition reimbursement from PepsiCo up to $5,250 for undergraduate courses and up to $8,000 for graduate courses per calendar year (from January 1–December 31). For Walden University students enrolled in PepsiCo’s Employee Scholars Program, the maximum tuition fees for each academic calendar year shall be $5,250 for a maximum of eight classes in undergraduate programs and $8,000 for a maximum of six classes in graduate programs. As long as a student takes fewer than the applicable maximum number of classes in an academic calendar year, any additional tuition fees and technology fees beyond the applicable maximum will be waived. An academic calendar year, as used herein, shall follow Walden’s annual academic calendar (spring, summer, fall, and winter terms). For example, an academic calendar year for a student who begins classes in summer 2018 term will end at the conclusion of the spring 2019 term.
Refer to PepsiCo’s Education Assistance Program policy for eligibility criteria. Students will be responsible for paying Walden University after 30 days from the completion of the course. In the event a student receives a grade that is not eligible for reimbursement under the Employee Scholars Program or drops a course that is not refundable, the student will be solely responsible for payment of all applicable tuition fees and such payment by student shall not count toward the annual maximum specified above. The student will refer to the EdAssist and PepsiCo reimbursement process to obtain their reimbursement funds. Students are responsible for paying for any charges incurred above and beyond this program, as well as for any courses in which they were unable to acquire reimbursement from PepsiCo. Walden University is not responsible for any non-payment by PepsiCo.
Walden may change the tuition benefit offered hereunder at any time. All tuition reductions, grants, or scholarships are subject to specific eligibility requirements. Contact a Walden University enrollment specialist for details.
