SOCCCD (IVC and Saddleback) Enrollment Fee Reimbursement Program

Free Enrollment!

Enrollment fee reimbursement is allowed for SOCCCD District courses taken for-credit or non-credit in each academic year. Reimbursement applies only to enrollment fees paid, and not to travel, course books, course materials, health fees or any other fee charged by the District.

Enrollment fee reimbursement is not available for community education (non-credit) classes unless the
course is approved by the immediate supervisor as being directly appropriate to their position.

Participation is limited to full time permanent employees and who are regularly scheduled to work 30 hours each week, 9 months a year or longer.


Please fill out the Employee Enrollment Fee Reimbursement Request Form and submit it in a Workday Tuition Reimbursement Expense Report within 60 days of completing the course.
