Education support

At Reynolds, we believe in the value of life-long learning. We offer a variety of programs to support you and your dependents in paying for your education – no matter where you are on your journey.

Tuition reimbursement

Growth and development are also important to your total well-being, so Reynolds provides a tuition reimbursement program. The program is available to all regular, full-time employees after completing one year with the company. Tuition costs are 100% reimbursable, up to $10,000 per calendar year. Covered expenses include tuition, program fees, technology fees and lab fees.

For more information on eligibility, requirements, and the application approval process, visit Employee Central>Rewards>Education Benefits.

Student Loan Support

Managing student debt can be overwhelming, so we have partnered with Fidelity and Credible to help make it easier for you. In addition to the Fidelity Student Debt tool, you can now compare refinancing options with Credible.

The Student Debt tool provides information about options you have to manage your student loan debt.

  • View all student loan information in one place
  • See how loans might look with different repayment plans, like federal income-based programs or private refinancing
  • Compare the pros and cons of different strategies
  • Get information on what repayment plan might work better for your situation

By refinancing your student debt, you may be able to:

  • Lower your interest rate
  • Lower your monthly payments
  • Release a cosigner from a student loan
  • Combine multiple loans to repay loans more efficiently
  • Take advantage of a flexible repayment plan
