Step 1 of 4: Comment on Document

How to make a comment?

2. Type your feedback into the comments box and then click "save comment" button located in the lower-right of the comment box.

3. Do not open more than one comment box at the same time.

4. When you have finished making comments proceed to the next stage by clicking on the "Continue to Step 2" button at the very bottom of this page.


Important Information

During the comment process you are connected to a database. Like internet banking, the session that connects you to the database may time-out due to inactivity. If you do not have JavaScript running you will receive a message to advise you of the length of time before the time-out. If you have JavaScript enabled, the time-out is lengthy and should not cause difficulty, however you should note the following tips to avoid losing your comments or corrupting your entries:

  1. DO NOT jump between web pages/applications while logging comments.

  2. DO NOT log comments for more than one document at a time. Complete and submit all comments for one document before commenting on another.

  3. DO NOT leave your submission half way through. If you need to take a break, submit your current set of comments. The system will email you a copy of your comments so you can identify where you were up to and add to them later.

  4. DO NOT exit from the interface until you have completed all three stages of the submission process.

Section 1 - Purpose and Scope

(1) This policy sets out the University's support for eligible employees who engage in approved formal study.

Section 2 - Policy Statement

(2) Southern Cross University is committed to supporting employees who engage in approved formal study programs which:

a. are relevant to the employee's current or planned work responsibilities at SCU;

b. improve the employee's capacity to contribute to the work of the University;

c. develop the skills and knowledge base of the University's workforce; and

d. increase opportunities for employees to develop their careers and contribute to job satisfaction.

(3) Study assistance approved under this policy is designed to benefit both the University and individual employees and is based on the principles of reciprocity and shared commitment. Managers are not permitted to approve and/or pay directly for any formal study or course by an employee that would otherwise be covered by this policy, without prior discussion with HR Services.

(4) Approval for assistance is based on balancing the needs of the individual with the needs of the University. The University will consider applications for assistance on a case by case basis as outlined in the Study Assistance Procedures.

(5) This policy supports study primarily at SCU. Where SCU does not offer a particular course, consideration will be given to support study at another institution. Only in exceptional circumstances will assistance be considered for courses undertaken at other institutions when a course is offered by SCU.

(6) Assistance may be provided in the form of financial assistance (an allowance paid through payroll) and paid time off to attend classes, undertake online or block release study and attend examinations.

(7) Study assistance is not available for repeat units and will cease if employment with the University ceases.
