West Chester University’s Cabinet approved a new WCU Graduate Degree Reimbursement Policy to help support University managers’ talent development. The policy is effective beginning the Fall of 2016. The purpose of this policy is to encourage University managers to pursue career relevant, graduate-level credit-bearing coursework or graduate degree programs by establishing a reimbursement mechanism for certain associated expenses.
