Employees may take courses specifically to improve their performance in their current job or to prepare for anticipated upcoming changes in their job duties through job related. These employees are not matriculated students and are not registered through Open University. However, classes are taken for credit and will be posted on the student's official transcript. Employees can also take courses which are prerequisites for a degree program they are planning on applying to.
Appropriate administrators may authorize the use of State time for all units (except Unit 8) for one class depending on the needs of the department, or they may allow changes in work schedules to accommodate a class schedule. Appropriate administrators are not obligated to do either, and employees may have to take fee waiver classes on their own time. The operational needs of the department must be met. Participants in Unit 8 may not take classes on State time.
