Amazon Career Choice

Amazon will pay for your tuition and fees at Drake State Community & Technical College through Amazon’s Career Choice program. Amazon’s Career Choice program is an education benefit that empowers employees to learn new skills for career success at Amazon or elsewhere. We meet individual learners where they are on their education journey through a variety of education and upskilling opportunities including full college tuition, industry certifications designed to lead to in-demand jobs, and foundational skills such as English language proficiency, high school diplomas, and GEDs.

Earn a degree and move up in your career

Fully funded opportunities: Up to an annual maximum benefit, Amazon will pre-pay 100% of tuition for employees to pursue everything from certificates to associate degrees.

Limitless learning: As long as eligible employees work at Amazon, they can continue to take advantage of the Career Choice benefit with no lifetime limit.

Fast starts: U.S. blue badge hourly employees (including part-time) will become eligible for Career Choice after 90 days of continuous employment, rather than 12 months.
