Accordingly, the University has instituted the following programs whereby Regular or Term CTS employees will be awarded variance to their salaries. CTS employees must choose between CAPOM (if certified prior to December 31, 2016) and MOS certification or a combination of CAP (if certified prior to December 31, 2016) and one MOS certification.

Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) Certification

  1. Southeast Missouri State University recognizes the value of the contributions made by its Clerical, Technical and Service staff. Accordingly, the University has instituted the MOS Certification Program whereby Regular or Term CTS employees will be awarded variance to their salaries for the following professional certification:
    1. $400 increment ($0.192 per hour x 40 hours per week x 52 weeks) as a variance to their salaries upon completion of any of the requirements for Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certification in Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint or Outlook and receipt of the certificate (or written evidence thereof). The maximum salary variance payable will not exceed $1,600 per year. For part-time employees, the $400 salary variance will be pro-rated to the employee's percent of full-time assignment.
  2. To have the increment added to their salaries, CTS employees must provide Human Resources with written communication that they have qualified for the MOS certification. The increment then becomes effective the pay period following the submission of a copy of the certification to Human Resources.
  3. The University will reimburse an eligible staff member once for a maximum of four tests. The reimbursements should come from departmental operating budgets.
  4. To maintain the MOS salary variance, CTS employees must become re-certified every five years from the date of the preceding certification.
  5. A copy of the current certificate will be maintained in the employee’s personnel file.
