WATERBURY, CONN. (October 26, 2009) – As a new participant in Post University’s
Partners in Education Program, TD Bank will be able to offer its employees access to quality
undergraduate higher education at a reduced tuition rate.
Under the agreement, Post University will offer a tuition grant to employees of TD Bank
who want to earn an associate’s or bachelor’s degree by enrolling in one of the university’s
Accelerated Degree Programs. Employees also will have the option of enrolling in a Post
University master’s degree program. TD Bank offers employees partial tuition reimbursement,
making the path to a degree even more affordable.
“At TD Bank, we have always looked for ways to improve the lives of our employees,”

just another way to provide employees with the education they want and need to improve their

locations or completely online. They can earn a master’s degree in as little as 14 months, and a
bachelor’s degree in as little as 18 months. TD Bank employees also will receive college credit
for select corporate education and training courses, as well as for courses taken at other
