Off-Campus Classes (Employees only)
After discussing educational goals/plans with his/her supervisor, the employee should complete the Supervisor Approval of Program/Course form, obtain his/her supervisor's signature and submit to Human Resources. This form is submitted once at the beginning of the course of study. As courses are satisfactorily completed (minimum grade of "C"), the employee should complete the Tuition Reimbursement Request form, obtain his/her supervisor's signature, and submit to Human Resources along with a copy of the invoice showing tuition as a separate line item and a transcript of the grade(s). One-half of the tuition paid by the employee will be reimbursed upon review/approval of the documents submitted. The reimbursement will be pro-rated based on an employee's work schedule. Reimbursement for graduate level courses that exceeds $5,250 in a calendar year will be considered taxable earnings to the employee. There is no taxable earnings limit for undergraduate courses. This benefit is limited to six classes in a calendar year.
Mohawk Valley College Consortium
In addition to the academic benefits offered to employees, Hamilton is a member of the Mohawk Valley College Consortium, consisting of seven area colleges offering a Cross Registration program for full-time Hamilton students and full-time Hamilton employees. This program is not available to Hamilton dependents unless the dependent is a full-time, matriculated Hamilton student.
