Delegation of Authority: Educational Assistance for Faculty and Staff (SYS 210)

Delegation of Authority

IV. Policy
D. Requests for reimbursement for the cost of coursework or training are initiated by the employee through the appointing authority. Normally, the coursework is taken on an employee's own time. If the employer determines that the needed coursework is available only during the employee's scheduled hours of service, a program of proportional compensatory time may be arranged, provided normal services of the employing unit are not disrupted or impaired. No more than one course, up to five credits, or a training equivalent in any academic term (e.g., a semester, summer session or an equivalent) should be reimbursed. Additional coursework may be authorized by the chancellor or designee.

DELEGATION TO: Provost (or designee) and Vice Chancellor for Administrative Services (or designee)
