Tuition Reimbursement Program

Published on: 10/25/2016 11:37 AM
Tuition Reimbursement (TR) is a fund available to coded County Employees that is designed to reimburse for classes, conferences, and some required materials, like textbooks. In order to qualify for reimbursement, the classes taken must benefit the employee’s professional development within the County or be for their professional license. The total amount available to each employee is negotiated by their bargaining unit. In some cases, the cost of a professional license can be reimbursed if the job classification is listed as eligible in the bargaining union’s MOU.  This fund is not applicable to Court employees.
What is the process to apply and where do I find the form?

How much is available?
