The reason must be related to your job, such as skill improvement, department need, working toward a degree, professional certification or recertifications, or a study that contributes to the accomplishment of the College's mission, vision and goals. For degree-seeking applicants, a planned program of study is required. For all other applicants, a statement of the direct relationship of the activity to work improvement is required.
