Here are 10 jobs that could help you pay for college!


Internships, at the very least, normally offer college credit, but you should always try, if you can, to find the ones that offer to pay for your services. According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers, students in 2016 were more likely to get a high-paying, entry-level job if they held a paid internship during their time in school. In addition, a few paid-internships can also offer tuition reimbursement.

Campus Jobs

The expression, “It was with you all along,” comes to mind, here. Getting a job on campus already saves time and effort with the commute, but there are other benefits. Some campus jobs can offer a form of tuition reimbursement. The most obvious forms of this are teaching and research assistants. All in all, it is never too late for graduate students.


With Amazon, workers who serve more than 20 hours a week are eligible for a Career Choice program after a year of employment. Over four years, you could earn up to $12,000 for an associate degree or vocational certification.


Starbucks has gained the reputation of being one of the few companies not to write off college graduates as being unqualified, but it could probably serve you better to get a job as a student. According to the Starbucks College Achievement Plan, American, benefits-eligible employees are eligible for a tuition reimbursement program, essentially helping them earn a free degree, provided they use online programs at Arizona State University.


Chipotle offers their employees educational assistance that boasts saving them up to 99% on college costs. With $5,250 from Chipotle directly and $5,185 in federal grants annually, a student could pay as little as $250 a year. In addition, with another program that offers credit hours with on-the-job training, students could also earn up to 44 credit hours, essentially a third of the degree. In addition, they also offer dental plans.


Similar to the Starbucks deal, Walmart partnered up with the American Public University to form an educational assistance program. With the Walmart Lifelong Learning Program, both part-time and full-time workers, at both Walmart and Sam’s Club, and even family members, can get a 15% discount on tuition with a grant. Employees need to have a high school diploma or a GED to qualify, but eligibility is available immediately on hiring.

Home Depot

With the program covering associate, bachelors, masters, doctoral and even technical degrees, the exact amount of money you receive varies if you are a part-time, full-time, or salaried worker.

Smucker’s, whose brands include Pillsbury and Meow Mix, can offer full reimbursement for tuition costs, provided that the company approves the courses. I always knew to trust the cat food industry.

Ford Company

Some of these programs will offer tuition after the fact, but for those who need the money in the first place, Ford $6,000 per year in tuition in advance of class completion. Classes must be approved, but, on the plus side, Ford also offers a textbook reimbursement program.
