About Conference Attendance & Tuition Reimbursement

Motion:   Move to approve the May, 2013 Revised Policy for Faculty Conference Attendance and Tuition Reimbursement.


Proposed Revised Policy for West Faculty for Conference Attendance and Tuition Reimbursement (May 2013)


Conference Attendance  

Each faulty member on active assignment at WLAC is eligible to receive $150.00 each for conference attendance.   If a full-time faculty member wishes additional conference funds, additional funds from four other faculty members, if approved by each contributing member, could be used for conference reimbursement up to a total of $750.00 for the fiscal year.    This amount would be the maximum reimbursable amount for each faculty member per academic year.

Adjunct faculty with an assignment, within the current fiscal year/semester, would receive $150.00 initially for conference reimbursement.   After that, amounts available to adjuncts from four other supporting faculty with an assignment in the current fiscal year/semester.

Payment for conference reimbursement would be processed and paid upon completion of the Conference Summary Form and Expenditure Form.  District/college policies and procedures for approval for conference attendance must be followed.


Tuition Reimbursement

Each full-time faculty member, within the fiscal year ( beginning 2013-2014) may apply for tuition reimbursement for one-half the cost of the faculty members tuition up to a maximum of $3000.00 ( contract revision 2011-14)  Supporting documentation is required, including an approved application, payment receipts and official transcripts.

Adjunct Faculty, on the seniority list, with an assignment in the current fiscal year/semester, may also apply for tuition reimbursement.  Reimbursement is limited to one-half the cost of tuition up to a maximum of $3000.00 (contract revision 2011-14).

The process for payment is different from that of conference reimbursement.   Applications are accepted from all faculty members from July 1st of that year up to May 1st of the following academic year.   May 1st would be the designated deadline to submit the appropriate paperwork for tuition reimbursement, even if classes were taken after that date but concluded by June 30th.  A final appraisal of all awards would be determined by the Professional Development Committee for approval and then forwarded to the Academic Senate Executive Committee.
