To provide the benefit of tuition remission for all Centenary College employees and their dependents.
Centenary College wishes to encourage its employees to continue their education through either auditing or registering for and attending undergraduate classes. All full-time, disabled, and retired employees may take any undergraduate course free of charge (limited to one course per semester) after a year of continuous employment at the College, subject to supervisor approval and seat availability.
Dependents of full-time Centenary College employees are entitled to a discount schedule for remission of their tuition. A dependent is defined as a legal spouse, domestic partner or legal dependent under the age of 25.
During the first 12 months of employment, dependents are entitled to a 25% discount on tuition, after 12 months of employment a reduction of 50% will be given, after 24 months of employment a reduction of 75% will be given, and after 36 months dependents may have full tuition benefits. No fees are included in the remission. Percentages apply to the number of hours the dependent is taking. Dependents are eligible to use tuition remission toward their first undergraduate degree only.
Centenary College wishes to encourage its employees to continue their education by enrolling in its Graduate Program. The parameters of the program are as follows:
Those eligible for scholarship and federal aid benefits are expected to apply for these sources of aid that may be available to them in an effort to reduce the financial burden to the College. College tuition remission will be reduced by the amount the dependent receives from other sources designated as tuition scholarship aid.
Those using the Tuition Remission benefit are not eligible for the Centenary Tuition Exchange Program and vice versa.

To provide employees with protection against loss of earnings due to illness and/or injury by the establishment of a program wherein employees shall be compensated for limited absences due to illnesses and/or injury.
Regular exempt and non-exempt staff employees in a pay status and who are scheduled to work 37.5 hours per week shall earn sick leave at the rate of 6.3 hours per month and like employees who are scheduled to work 40 hours per week shall earn sick leave at the rate of 6.7 hours per month. Employees scheduled to work 37 ½ hours weekly, may accumulate 975 hours of sick leave; employees scheduled to work 40 hours weekly, may accumulate 1040 hours of sick leave. However, those employees on the active roll on May 31, 2001 who have accumulated more than 975 or 1040 hours of sick leave may continue the amount accumulated as of that date. Such employees may use the sick leave accumulated in excess of 975 or 1040 hours but once this use causes the accumulated amount to drop to 975 or 1040 hours this amount will become their maximum. Part-time employees shall earn sick leave on a pro-rata basis based on percent of time worked.
When in the opinion of the unit head an employee appears to be abusing the use of sick leave, a physician's statement may be required prior to the receipt of payment for sick leave. A unit head may require an employee to seek medical assistance should the use of sick leave become excessive when the employee has not visited a physician.
Employees who cannot report to work because of illness should contact their supervisors prior to the beginning of their regular shift. Payment for sick leave may be withheld in the event an employee fails to report his/her absence that is due to illness.
No payment for unused sick leave shall be made upon the termination of an employee.
