NYS/NYSCOPBA Labor Management Tuition Reimbursement Program


We have just been informed that OSC notified all agencies that in order for employees to be reimbursed for any expenses the Standard Vouchers will no longer be accepted for tuition reimbursement.

The BSC requires that all employees must utilize the following forms to request travel reimbursement or any other approved business expense to be reimbursed to an employee:

- Employee Report of Travel Expenses and Claim for Payment (AC 132-S)
- Statement of Incidental and Transportation Expenses (AC 3259-S)

Unit members are eligible for tuition reimbursement up to $1,200 and book, lab fees and digital fees up to$ 250 for each fiscal year. Please note: applications are now being accepted for the 2011-2012, 2012-2013, 2013-2014 & 2014-2015 Fiscal Years which have not been previously submitted.

Program funds have been reappropriated and are available.

Tuition Reimbursement Program reimburses applicants for a portion of the covered tuition expense up to a fiscal year maximum. The program encourages career development and provides financial assistance to members for educational activities which support or improve the skills required for current job assignments or for fulfilling career-related course work.
