The State Of Connecticut Tuition Reimbursement Program allocates funds for permanent employees. The benefit is for those employees who are continuing their education in an area that enhances their current job performance or assists in upward mobility in a job-related field, or is an elective that is part of a degree program.
Permanent full time, as well as part time (20 hours+) employees may apply for tuition reimbursement funds by completing a tuition reimbursement application form (CO-101) at least two weeks prior to beginning study. (Only original documents can be accepted. Fax documents will not be accepted or processed.)
This is an application process and payment is not guaranteed. All funds must be approved by the Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services, Department of Administrative Services, and the Office of the State Comptroller.
Eligibility requirements, funding levels and reimbursement amounts are governed by collective bargaining agreements. Please check your contract for detailed information. Please use Form CO-101.
The Office of the State Comptroller issues reimbursement funds upon approval of each application and successful completion of course(s) with a passing grade. All reimbursement payments are dependent upon the availability of adequate funds.
The employee must also determine the tax status of the tuition reimbursement benefits. For non-taxable tuition reimbursement, check the job-related box. For taxable tuition reimbursements, check the non job-related box. Employees can refer to Comptroller's Memorandum Number 2008-41, Determining Tax Status of Employee Tuition Reimbursement Payments or the Internal Revenue Guidelines at http://www.IRS.gov/ for additional information.
