The Training Section offers two programs which pay registration and required material fees for NDOT Employees to attend college classes.
Job Related Program
The Job Related Program is for employees who need to take job related classes offered by colleges. The course must be directly related to the employee's duties. To qualify, one must be a full-time NDOT employee in good standing. To take job related college classes, employees will need to submit College Request Forms each semester they will be taking classes paid for by the Training Section.
College Degree Program
The College Degree Program is for those who are taking one or more college classes leading to a degree. In this program, job related and non-job related classes can be approved. To qualify, one must be a full-time NDOT employee in good standing with 12 months of service for a bachelor's degree, and 24 months of service for a master's degree or PhD. To take classes in the college degree program, an employee must submit a College Degree Application, and if approved, submit a College Request Form each semester they wish to take classes paid for by the Training Section. An Annual College Degree Program Renewal form is to be submitted once a year and whenever there is a change in the sought degree.
