WSCU Tuition Benefits - NEW & IMPROVED!
Mutual respect and trust are the cornerstones to good working relationships. To that end, the university is committed to fostering a work environment free of harassment. Every employee plays an important role in this commitment. All new employees are required to complete our online preventing sexual harassment training course, in support of the Anti-Discrimination Policy (see section 2.2 of the Trustees Policy Manual). The online course takes about an hour. Employees must pass the quiz at the end of the course to register their course completion. http://training.newmedialearning.com/psh/westernstatecco/
WSCU employees can take Extended Studies classes non-credit classes for free, or credit classes at a reduced rate (see below). Many Extended Studies classes fill up, so it is important that employees who sign up do attend! The college loves to have employees take classes from Extended Studies – we just ask you to attend or let the Extended Studies staff know early enough that they can fill the seat, if you decide not to attend. You can find the Extended Studies Course offerings online at www.western.edu/extendedstudies
Here's the scoop on employees reduced rates for Extended Studies:
Non Credit classes
Employees can take up to two non-credit class free each semester. This does not include non credit classes offered by outside agencies, i.e. NOLS, Crested Butte Mountain Guides, Silverton Mountain, etc. If an employee signs up for a course, and does not attend, and does not contact Extended Studies to drop the course according to the drop deadlines noted in our refund policy, the employee will be charged for the course.
Employees can take credit classes offered through Extended Studies for 50% off the advertised tuition. This only applies to the tuition portion of the course. No discount is available for course fees associated with the course, fees charged by outside agencies, materials fees or textbooks. These fees are the full responsibility of the employee.
Extended Studies reserves the right to limit the number of free employee registrations per class, particularly those classes which have very small enrollment limits
