WIA Mileage Reimubursements

WIA students: the mileage reimbursements were slowed down, but fear not, your checks are on the way. It's a good idea to keep track of what you are submitting for mileage reimbursement so you know what you have received. The turn around time is about 4 weeks for mileage claims.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact Caitlin at 477-5190 or by email, caalastr@cabrillo.edu

Parent Support Group

The first meeting of the Parent Support Group was great! New people are always welcome. The group is drop-in so don't worry about RSVPing...just show up! See you next Tuesday at 3:00 p.m. at the Fast Track office (Room 802).

Being a student and a parent is hard! That's why we're starting a support group just for Fast Track students who are also parents. Starting November 6th, Fast Track will host a weekly support group on Tuesdays from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. This will be a drop-in group so there's no need to RSVP in advance. This will be a chance for you to relax, talk & listen. You're not alone!

We can arrange childcare. Call Caitlin at 477-5190 if you are interested.

Reimbursements [WIA & ECE]

Attention WIA & TANF-ECE Grant Students:

Whenever you submit receipts for reimbursement, make sure that you also submit some form of proof of payment. For transactions handled with check this would be a copy of the front and the back of the check (once it has cleared). For credit card transactions proof of payment is a copy of the statement showing the transaction. For your protection, black out account numbers. Most banks and credit card companies make this information available online. As always, you are welcome to print from the computer at Fast Track. Cash transactions need only the receipt.

WIA students also need to sign a blue claim form each time you turn in receipts for reimbursement.

We must have the blue claim form, original receipts and proof of payment in order to process your reimbursement claims.
