Candidate Reimbursement for Interview

Los Rios reimburses certain interview candidates for a portion of their travel costs if they reside outside of the city, state, or country. The job advertisement will indicate whether candidates are eligible for reimbursement.

Mileage Determination

Reimbursement amount is made based on travel for one-way mileage from the physical address listed on the candidate's application to the interview location. Mileage is determined using a GPS map (for example, Google Maps or MapQuest).

Reimbursement Rates

Interview Level One-Way Mileage (Physical Address to Interview Location) Maxiumum Reimbursement Amount

First and second interview 399 miles or fewer (combined) $250
First interview Between 400 and 599 miles $250
First and second interview Between 400 and 599 miles (combined) $350

Travel Receipts

To be reimbursed, the candidate must submit the following at the time of their interview:

  1. Original receipts for expenses (airplane, hotel, tolls, meals, and so on)
  2. Printed copy of the GPS driving directions

Processing Time

Please allow six to eight weeks for a reimbursement check to be processed.

Multiple Interviews

Los Rios tracks candidate reimbursements. Candidates who interview for more than one position within the district on the same day or consecutive days will receive a single reimbursement. In addition, candidates who submit multiple reimbursement requests at different colleges for the same expenses (for example, a flight) will receive only one reimbursement.
