ADDENDUM G

NON-TRADITIONAL INSTITUTIONS, COURSES AND SEMINARS APPROVED FOR THE
STATE TUITION REIMBURSEMENT PROGRAM
 

  1. Most non-traditional schools offer professional development needed by various professions to maintain certification.  Usually the coursework is not for credit but for CEU's or CEC's.  Some exceptions to this general rule are external degree programs like Charter Oak and Regents College that grant actual college credits but offer alternate ways of obtaining the credit than traditional classrooms. Additionally, the Department of Higher Education (DHE) licenses private occupational schools in Connecticut.  Any private occupational school that is licensed by DHE that provides relevant educational programs meeting other requirements of tuition reimbursement will be considered an approved non-traditional provider. The website address for the State of Connecticut Department of Higher Education listing of approved schools is as follows:
