Online Payment Processes: MyBenefit (Noncredit Course Fee Waiver)

Noncredit course fees - MyBenefit

Full-time regular employees may receive assistance to help pay course fees to enroll in noncredit courses offered by Missouri State University‘s approved units for the purpose of professional and personal development. The University will pay $150 per employee, per fiscal year (July 1 through June 30) for the employee's enrollment in noncredit courses sponsored through these units.

MyBenefit is an online process for all full-time eligible employees to use in applying their $150.00 Noncredit Fee Waiver Benefit towards the cost of personal and professional development classes offered through My Learning Connection. MyBenefit also allows employees to defer the paying of any remaining balance for later payment through their accounts with the Bursar’s Office (Business Office on the West Plains campus). Employees who elect to use MyBenefit will be able to apply the balance of their Noncredit Fee Waiver to the cost of a class and defer any remaining cost to their University account. MyBenefit is part of the online registration and payment process in My Learning Connection.  

For additional information about the Noncredit Fee Waiver Benefit for fulltime employees, please refer to Chapter 6.4.2 Noncredit Course Fees - My Benefit of the Employee Handbook. The new PLMS system will be updated with the charges made by employees against their account during his interim process for the FY17 Noncredit Fee Waiver Benefit.  Please follow these guidelines when making a purchase through My Learning Connection.
