Faculty can apply for paid professional leave to obtain an advanced degree Article 17 Section 1(f) or for paid sabbatical leave Article 17 Section 1(g), as stated in the current SEA CBA, as outlined in SSU Policy 2.04 - Faculty Professional Leaves (PDF)
Once the application has been fully approved and the faculty receives a fully signed copy,
- If the approval was for Off-Campus Tuition, faculty will continue to follow instructions for reimbursement each semester:
- Complete the Off-Campus Faculty Development Reimbursement Form
- If the approval was for paid personal leave (sabbatical), the faculty will receive a letter from the Office of the Provost outlining the timeframe and requirements that the faculty will need to provide upon completion of the sabbatical.
