These requests shall be made in the form of a Special Report addressed to John A.

Tuition reimbursement requests must include the following:

1. College and course information. If specific course information is not available, the number of credits the member intends to take is sufficient to document the request;
2. Educational standing and accreditation of the facility offering the course;
3. The estimated cost of tuition and mandatory fees; and
4. Semester or session of the course offering.

The Department will compile the requests and notify the members by August 1, 2019, of the number of funds that will be available to him/her for reimbursement.
