Educational Assistance

This program provides an excellent opportunity for employees who wish to improve their current skills or embark on a career development plan.

Employees are encouraged to participate in programs of academic study leading to a degree. Courses not part of a degree program must be related to the duties of the employee's current position or future job duties, or course must provide additional knowledge or skills to the employee that would benefit UEC.

Application Procedure

Eligible employees should obtain a copy of the Schedule of Classes for each quarter as soon as it is available in the University Bookstore. There is a limit of two courses or 6 units, whichever is greater, that can be taken each quarter.

The Application for Educational Assistance must be completed, signed by the applicant and his/her supervisor, and then returned to UEC Human Resources.

UEC Human Resources will review, approve, and forward the applicant a copy of the approved Application for Educational Assistance form, so that applicant can proceed with registration.

If convenient for the department and approved by director, employees may schedule one course during a normal work shift. All time off related to course work must be made up and a Request for Make Up Time must be attached to the Application for Educational Assistance.

If an employee withdraws from enrollment and any fees are incurred, the employee will be responsible for the payment of these fees plus any administrative charge that applies.
