Submit a Payment Request

A Payment Request refers to the process that an Amazon employee like you completes to ask Amazon to make a payment to cover tuition and fees at an approved school on your behalf, as part of their Career Choice benefit. To submit a Career Choice Payment Request, follow these steps:

  1. Enroll at Oregon State University
  2. Submit a Career Choice Payment Request on Amazon Career Choice
  3. Watch for OSU's review and approval of your request.
  4. Get your payment disbursement within 2-4 weeks of Amazon receiving your Payment Request.

Please note: Each Payment Request needs to be submitted before the start of your course but no more than 90 days in advance. Your Payment Request will be sent to Amazon for processing after the last day to add courses for the term requested. 

If you decide you want to cancel your Payment Request, it is your responsibility to cancel it by logging into the Amazon Career Choice portal. It cannot be canceled by Amazon or Oregon State University for you. If you cancel the Payment Request and there is a cost associated with your schooling, per Amazon, you are responsible for paying the balance.
