Policy Statement

Durham Technical Community College provides the opportunity to all full-time (40 hours per week) employees to request part-time educational leave with pay.




Full-Time employees who are on regular contract of employment are eligible for part-time educational leave with pay for a three-semester credit hour course scheduled during the normal 40-hour work week with prior approval. A written request for part-time educational leave must be submitted and approved through standard supervisory channels and the President using the Part-Time Educational Leave Request form. (See also Tuition Waivers for information about Durham Tech Community College courses.)

Part-Time Educational Leave Request forms submitted to supervisors and to the President for considering approval and/or submitted to the Business Office after the educational leave has begun or has been completed will be automatically declined for waiving the tuition and fees or an associated expenses. Any unapproved educational leave taken will be considered as leave without pay, and the employee must pay the tuition and fees or reimburse the college for any associated expenses the college has paid.

Durham Tech Community College’s Human Resources Department must receive an official grade report/transcript of courses taken and grades earned within 60 days of the employee’s completion of the leave.
