Tuition Reimbursement

CCS has a formal program of educational assistance to encourage all full-time employees to develop their potential through continued education. College courses and degree programs must meet job-related criteria. Approval will be given to courses which, in the opinion of management, would benefit the employee’s performance and development at CCS. The educational institution must be accredited in the programs that are being taken.

After one year of service, full-time employees are eligible to participate in the Tuition Reimbursement plan. The employee must not be eligible to receive similar assistance from any other source. A completed and approved Application for Tuition Reimbursement form must be processed prior to enrollment. Degree programs must be described in their entirety. The Application must list what courses are to be taken, when they will be taken and must agree with the program requirements in the school catalog. The Application for Educational Assistance will be approved by the immediate supervisor and Assistant Director of Human Resources and be kept in the employee’s Personnel Record.

Class attendance and all related assignments must not conflict with the employee’s regular work schedule. Reimbursement will be based on the employee submitting the following:

  • approved Application for Educational Assistance
  • successful completion of courses with a grade of “C” (2.0 on a 4.0 scale) or better; copy of the grade sheet required
  • a copy of the registration form and paid invoice

CCS will reimburse 100% of tuition and fees up to a maximum of $3000 per calendar year. CCS’s Educational Assistance program is for college level courses. Other forms of education (short courses, seminars, workshops) may be eligible for reimbursement under your department Professional Development budget. If your employment is terminated for any reason prior to completion of a course, you will not be eligible for reimbursement.
