Staff Development Funds

Staff Development

The University will cover the in-state portion of all instructional and general fees up to eight (8) credit hours of undergraduate or graduate courses per semester or fees for continuing education courses up to the equivalent cost of eight (8) undergraduate credit hours per semester. If the faculty/staff member takes less than eight (8) credit hours (graduate or undergraduate), the University will also cover continuing education fees up to the cost of the unused credit hours at the undergraduate rate. Any unused credit hours cannot be banked. Application, U-Pass, Lab. and transcript fees are the responsibility of the employee.
