Eligible recipients will meet the following criteria:

  • Employee must be accepted and enrolled in a degree-seeking program relative to job description, but will be allowed the first 6 hours as a non-degree-seeking student upon supervisory approval.
  • Employee must maintain satisfactory academic progress.
