For current GHS employees who have decided to return to school to gain additional education, we commend you. Because you are now in a new role as a student, you will need to make sure that we go through proper clearance processes to ensure you are properly credentialed in your additional role.
Educational Assistance Program
One of the ways that GHS supports lifelong learning for its employees is through the education assistance program. Eligible employees may receive up to $4,000 per fiscal year for reimbursement of covered educational expenses.
The GHS education assistance program is managed through a national vendor, EdAssist. Through EdAssist our employees have access to both academic and financial advising, as well as 24/7 access to their reimbursement records and payment tracking.
General questions may be answered by EdAssist at (855) 687-7631. The Office of Learning and Development can assist with any specific questions by calling (864) 455-6100.
Employee as Student Clearance Process
For GHS employees needing clearance as a student, employees are required to do student HealthStream modules and complete any necessary clearance items in myClinicalExchange before a student badge can be issued. To assist with the clearance process, employees can complete the following attestation forms:
- Attestation Form – Employee as Student Criminal Background Check
- Attestation Form – Employee as Student Immunization Clearance
- Attestation Form – Employee as Student HealthStream Clearance

GHS is aligned with several academic partners that provide graduate nursing and professional studies programs. As a benefit, GHS employees are eligible to receive priority clinical or educational placement when enrolled in a GHS-affiliated academic program.
