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