Thanks

Check the box if you have a high school diploma/GED. The rest is for College info.

If you get the interview, another tab will be visible that says, "Hiring Information" That form has a section where you fill out your High School info.

On this topic,

Do you think it is alright to list college if itís still in progress? I just listed my start date, no end date since Iím still working on it, and then left the degree obtained box empty with an explanation of what Iím pursuing on the major box.

I did just this and I was hired. Still working on the 4 yr. Had the Associates from a while back though. They asked briefly about it during my interview but didnít seem to make a big deal over it.

Take a look at SWAís tuition reimbursement program if you have not already. Very easy application process. It is awesome and pays for my Masters Degree. Only limfac is that I can only take two classes per year. Otherwise I would exceed the $5,000 per year maximum reimbursement for a graduate program.

Hi Typhoon,

Are employees eligible upon hire, or is there a wait time?

On PC under education it reads Highest level of education and on Southwest ICIMS it reads Highest education completed in the drop downs. If persuing a Bachelors degree, should that be indicated in these drop downs or should Associates degree be indicated?

Based on the wording, what would you propose to enter? Seems self-explanatory to me.

Sorry it took a while. The tuition reimbursement program mentions in the requirements ďto be an active employee and stay with the company for two years after last reimbursementĒ. Also the annual limit on undergraduate programs is $2,500, $5,000 for graduate programs.

Hey MMR,

For what it's worth, here's how I did it.

I just recently started school online. So on pilot credentials I created an entry for the school, listed a start date, NO end date, and no degree obviously. In the major box I listed what I'm pursuing.

Thanks for your reply. That is what I have done as well. I have an Associates degree and I am in the process of finishing my Bachelors degree.

I am in the process of taking my final class with an online college for my Bachelors degree. The class ends on the 3rd of March but the college wonít confer the degree until 15 May. My advisor offered to provide me a Letter of Qualification for meeting their degree requirements. Thoughts on marking having the degree completed on the 3rd of March?
