UNF selected by Amazon as a Career Choice program education partner

The University of North Florida has been selected as an education partner for Amazon’s Career Choice program and will provide Amazon’s hourly employees the opportunity to earn an undergraduate degree or certificate at UNF via Amazon’s pre-paid tuition program. 

“UNF is proud to partner with Amazon to provide skills and training with the flexible schedules and online course options that working students need to advance their careers,” said Dr. Glen Besterfield, UNF dean of enrollment management.  

Amazon’s Career Choice program is an educational benefit that empowers employees to learn new skills for career success at Amazon or elsewhere. The program meets individual learners where they are on their education journey through a variety of education and upskilling opportunities. 

In the U.S., the company is investing $1.2 billion to upskill more than 300,000 employees by 2025 to help move them into higher-paying, in-demand jobs. Amazon’s Career Choice program has a rigorous selection process for third-party partner educators, choosing partners that are focused on helping employees through their education programs, assisting them with job placements, and overall offering education that leads to career success.  

“We’re looking forward to UNF coming on board as an education partner for Career Choice, adding to the hundreds of best-in-class offerings available to our employees,” said Tammy Thieman, Global Director of Amazon Career Choice. “Today, over 150,000 Amazon employees around the world have participated in Career Choice and we’ve seen first-hand how it can transform their lives.”
