Tuition Reimbursement and Loan Forgiveness
Staff Tuition Reimbursement Program
(no requests accepted after this date)
When participants submit a final grade report demonstrating satisfactory completion.
Per New Mexico Public Education Department and the Rural Low Income School grant, we will pay 100% of tuition at successful completion for the course(s) the employee is taking.
* Please note that the district’s fiscal year ends on June 30, so funds will be encumbered with the assumption that participants will pass their classes. One hundred percent of reimbursement will be made when a receipt for payment and official grade report are submitted.
- STRP assistance is allowable for undergraduate or graduate education leading to a degree.
- The employee must be admitted to a degree/certificate program.
- The allowance is limited to regular tuition and general recurring fees (includes online fees).
- Some of the fees and materials that STRP will not reimburse include:
- books or course materials
- tools, equipment, or supplies (other than required textbooks)
- certificate programs
- room and board
- laboratory breakage fees
- tutoring fees
- auditing fees
- transportation and parking
- expenses at any institution that are not normally included in the basic tuition fees by Western New Mexico University.
STRP participants must attend accredited colleges and universities to be approved for the program.
