Professional Licenses and Certifications


View policy pdf: Professional Licenses and Certifications Policy

Payment for licenses, certification fees, specialized training, or other similar expenses may be authorized for an employee when the institution requires the license, certification, or training as a condition of employment.  The following requirements must be met:

  • Employee is on payroll during the period that the license or certification is active for or during the time of training.
  • License, certification, or training is directly related to the employee's present position and is required by the University.
  • The University will benefit from the specialized training received by the employee.
  • Specialized training does not involve University course credit.  Any course taken which can be applied as a credit towards a University degree now or in the future would fall in this category.
