Questions about Supporting Documentation?

We recommend using an unofficial transcript or a screenshot of your final class grade. 

Please do not send the grades of individual assignments or unconverted "points" .

Acceptable formats include letter grades (A, B, C, etc.) or numerical grades (0 - 100 scale). Pass/Fail is also an acceptable format. 

Good Submission: 


This sample unofficial transcript has: The student name, the class name and/or number and the final grade. This documentation would be approved.

Unapproved Submission: 


This submission does not have a student name, does not include a final student grade, and shows the individual assignments. This photo would be rejected and the employee would need to resubmit. It also does not include the class name and/or number.[/caption]

Good Submission: 

This transcript has the student's name, the course number, and/or name, as well as the Pass/Fail status. This would be accepted.

We recommend taking a screenshot or asking your school's bursar for a receipt. A billing statement is also acceptable. It should include your name, the term, the price breakdown of tuition and fees as well as proof of payment.

This is an example of a billing statement. It has all of the requisite information: Student Name, Term, Tuition, and fee breakdown as well as proof of payment.
This billing statement reflects a billing plan however; Marilyn Monroe would not be eligible for reimbursement due to not completing her payment plan yet with the school.


This bursar receipt also has all the required information. Student name, term, tuition and fees as well as amounts paid.

The limit for reimbursement for Fy24 is $2,000.

You are welcome to submit screenshots, PDFs, or scans for your documents. Please avoid submitting Word documents. Ensure that all images are clear and legible. If submitting a screenshot, make sure the text is large enough to be easily read.

If you are enrolled in multiple classes, please submit your complete transcript. Reimbursement will be provided for courses where you earned a grade of "C" or higher. It is important to note that the reimbursement amount is dependent on the grades attained. Courses that were dropped or not successfully completed will not be eligible for reimbursement.
