Educational Assistance for Staff

The University of Wisconsin System encourages continuing education for employees and may provide educational assistance in the form of reimbursement upon successful completion of qualifying education or training. Qualifying education or training is determined to be beneficial to both the University and the employee in terms of increased knowledge, abilities, and skills.

To be eligible for consideration for such reimbursement, an employee must have at least a half-time appointment. Temporary employees, Employee-in-Training, and Student Assistant employee categories are not eligible.

Requests for reimbursement must be completed and approved prior to the beginning of the coursework or training. Please review the policy on Educational Assistance for Faculty and Staff for more information.
