Last Updated Date

Continuing Education – Tuition Reimbursement

    1. The Mattituck-Laurel Library supports continuing education for its employees by making available tuition reimbursement funding. The Library will reimburse tuition costs for graduate and undergraduate courses but will give priority to reimbursing tuition costs for staff pursuing a Master’s Degree in Library Science.
    2. The Director must approve eligibility in advance. Employees seeking tuition reimbursement should submit a Tuition Reimbursement Request Form to the Director before the first day of class.
    3. All full-time employees are eligible for Tuition Reimbursement. Part-time employees must work a minimum of 20 hours per week to be eligible.
    4. Full time staff will be reimbursed at a rate of 40% of tuition costs with a maximum of $2,000 per calendar year; part-timers will be reimbursed at a rate of 25% of tuition costs with a maximum of $1,000 per calendar year.
    5. Tuition reimbursement will be disbursed upon proof of satisfactory completion of each semester’s coursework. Reimbursable costs shall include the cost of tuition only. Reimbursable costs shall not include lab fees, required books, and other required course materials, tools and supplies that may aid the employee in the course, but which are not specifically required (e.g. computer hardware, software, calculators, instructional tapes), parking fees or any other expenses. An employee will not be eligible for reimbursement of tuition and required fees that are paid by state or federal education grants or scholarships.
