Employee Benefits

Employee benefits are an integral part of the compensation program at Moberly Area Community College. A variety of benefits are available to full-time employees, including medical, dental, 401k, tuition, life and disability insurance, community service, an employee assistance program, and paid time off. 

The following is a listing of employee benefits offered to full time employees at Moberly Area Community College. Additional information is provided in the MACC Policy Handbook.

A full-time employee is defined as an employee with a full-time teaching load or working a minimum of a 37 1/2 hour week for at least 9 1/4 months per year.​

Tuition Waivers

Effective: Beginning of semester after commencement of employment

Full-time employees and their spouses/domestic partners may attend MACC developmental and college classes with a waiver of incidental fees and tuition, technology fee, and student activity/support services fee. Attendance is subject to approval of the employee’s supervisor/dean. The cost of books, supplies, and laboratory fees is the responsibility of the individual.

In addition, full-time employees are eligible to apply for participation in one non-credit course/workshop per semester. If approved by the employee’s supervisor/dean, all fees and tuition will be waived. Books, workbooks, manuals, software, luncheon and/or dinner costs must be borne by the employee.

Dependents of full-time employees of MACC may attend MACC developmental and college-credit courses with a waiver of incidental fees and tuition, technology fee, and student activity/support services fee. The cost of books, supplies, and laboratory fees is the responsibility of the individual. Dependents are those members of the employee’s family meeting the IRS definition of a dependent. Dependents using this benefit must meet federal academic progress guidelines. Dependents who are eligible and meeting criteria for the Missouri A+ scholarship may receive an MACC voucher for college textbooks, course fees and lab fees in the fall and spring semesters for up to $500 and an MACC voucher for college textbooks, course fees and lab fees in the summer semester for up to $250.

Should the dependent’s parent cease to be employed at MACC, whether through resignation or termination during the course of a semester in which the dependent is enrolled at MACC, in accordance with this policy, the dependent will be allowed to complete the semester but will not be allowed to use the dependent tuition/fee waiver for future enrollment.

Retirees of Moberly Area Community College may also attend MACC courses with a waiver of incidental fees and tuition, technology fee, and student activity/support services fee. Courses may be audited or completed for credit.

Specialized programs such as LETC, MLT, and OTA will be covered at the highest tuition rate for out-of-district courses for employees, dependents, and spouses/domestic partners.

Professional Growth

Effective: After two consecutive years of employment

All full-time employees of Moberly Area Community College who have completed two successive years of full-time employment are eligible to apply to the President’s Council for reimbursement for college credit classes. Maximum reimbursement is $150 per credit hour or the actual credit-hour fee, whichever is less, for college coursework from accredited institutions beyond the Associate’s Degree or Bachelor’s Degree. Reimbursement is limited to six credit hours per academic year and may not be allowed if the employee is receiving another form of financial aid for the coursework. The college coursework is to be taken outside of the employee’s designated work schedule or the employee’s hours of work may be adjusted with approval of the supervisor.

Requests for this benefit must be made before enrolling in the course. To qualify for reimbursement, the applicant must earn a grade of C or higher. Application procedures and final authorization and reimbursement will be determined by the President’s Council.
