Changes coming for county employees seeking tuition reimbursement

Reimbursement for college tuition will become an easier process for county employees, pending action taken by the St. Joseph County Board of Commissioners.
A matter discussed during this week’s county commission executive committee centered on making the process of applying for reimbursement an easier procedure,
Pat Yoder, county administrator, said a few of the likely changes include a provision that an employee can begin to receive tuition reimbursement after just six months of employment instead of a year.
Also, prior to registration, employees will be required to complete a tuition-reimbursement application and submit it to human resources.
Yoder said human resources director Teresa Doehring also asked that a request be submitted within 60 days of the course completion.
