The San Mateo County Community College District recognizes that the quality of its educational offerings and services is enhanced by the professional growth and development of its employees.

The Classified Professional Development Program is intended to provide opportunities to attend classes and workshops that will promote outstanding departments, programs and services, while fostering the creativity, personal growth and advancement of our employees.

Through our professional development opportunities, we hope to create a positive climate of open communication, mutual respect and appreciation for the advantages of a diverse community.

Conference Reimbursement



Employees are encouraged to attend work-related professional conferences, workshops and/or seminars. Reimbursement up to a maximum of $1,000 per conference workshop per each fiscal year may be made.

If you are interested in attending a workshop, complete the Classified Professional Development Application well in advance of the date of the event, and obtain your supervisor’s approval. The application should then be forwarded to the CSM Business Office, where it will be reviewed by the Classified Professional Development Committee. After approval, the form will be sent to District Human Resources.

HR will process the request for reimbursement after submission of Statement of Conference Expense form no later than 30 days after the conference, via proper CSD campus contact.

Tuition Reimbursement



Employees who successfully complete approved college coursework may be eligible for funding through the tuition reimbursement program. The program is intended to support employees who wish to upgrade their skills and/or complete a college degree program at an accredited institution.

Employees may be reimbursed for tuition, required textbooks, and related expenses (not including meals or mileage) for a maximum reimbursement of $1,400 in a one year period (July 1 through June 30). Reimbursement will be made upon satisfactory completion of approved coursework with a grade of C or better.

Interested employees should complete the Classified Professional Development Application before starting their class work and obtain the approval of their supervisor and administrator. The application should then be forwarded to the CSM Business Office, where it will be reviewed by the Classified Professional Development Committee.

No later than 30 days after completion of the class, submit Request for Reimbursement form with attached receipts and final grades.
