Click the STARS (Training) tab, then select My STAP Balance from the menu.
The balance displayed is the amount of STAP funds still available for use during the current fiscal year (September 1 to August 31).Note: STAP funds are not carried over. Funds are allocated at the beginning of each fiscal year and can only be used for courses, seminars, workshops, etc. that begin in that fiscal year.
Complete the form, obtain supervisor approval and submit the form with receipts and course syllabus/description to the department administrator immediately following payment for the approved training expense.
Requests for reimbursement of allowable expenses through STAP should be made within 20 days of satisfactory completion of the training. The timing is important to prevent the payment from becoming taxable to the employee.
You should receive reimbursement within 20 days of submission.
