Training and Development Frequently Asked Questions
Who is eligible to participate in training and development classes?
Classes are available to faculty and staff, regardless of experience or educational background. Employees are eligible for professional development programs without regard to race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, disability or veteran status.
What if I have to work when a class is offered?
Many classes are offered during work hours, and managers are encouraged to allow employees to participate. Employees who attend professional development programs during work hours are normally not required to make up time spent in class.
How do I register for a class?
Employees may register online or by completing and printing an online registration form. Registration is accepted on a first-come basis.
How do I pay for classes that have a fee?
When you fill out the registration form for a fee-based class, you will need your department’s UDAK number. Fees will be charged to your department via the UDAK. Please note that supervisory approval must be obtained before registering for a fee-based class.
What about parking?
Employees should park in their usual location and use University Transportation Services to travel to classes. Those who work off-campus and do not have access to the shuttle service may call Parking Management (792-3665) to make arrangements for parking.
