Tuition Reimbursement Opportunities
All tenured and exempt employees are eligible for reimbursement. Part-time tenured employees working 20 hours per week or more will be eligible for reimbursement on a pre-rated basis. Reimbursement may be made for coursework taken through an accredited college or university after the employee has worked for the City for a period of one continuous year, provided the course is either related to the employee's current position (or any position in the City to which the employee could reasonably aspire) or a class necessary to obtain a degree related to the employee's current position (or any position with the department.)
Reimbursement is made at 100% (subject to the availability of funds) of eligible tuition fees up to 12 credit hours per calendar year provided the employee receives a grade of "B" or better in the class. Maximum reimbursements will be equivalent to current Northern Arizona University tuition rates.
