The Los Rios Community College District is committed to ensuring an inclusive recruitment and hiring process that provides all qualified candidates with a fair opportunity for employment. Los Rios offers a partial reimbursement of travel expenses to candidates who have been selected for an interview and reside outside the local area, state, or country. This reimbursement option is available to all applicants for Los Rios positions that explicitly mention travel reimbursement in the job posting.

Guidelines 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 an online GPS map tool (for example, Google Maps).

Reimbursement Rates

Reimbursements are a flat rate and will not exceed the following amounts.
Interview Level One-Way Mileage (Physical Address to Interview Location) Maximum Reimbursement Amount
First interview Between 400 and 599 miles $250
First interview 600 miles or more $350
First and second interview (combined) 399 miles or fewer $250
First and second interview (combined) Between 400 and 599 miles $350
First and second interview (combined) 600 miles or more $450

Travel Documentation

To be reimbursed, the candidate must submit a copy of the GPS driving directions either at the time of their interview or within seven days of their interview to the hiring department.

Processing Time

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

Multiple Interviews

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 travel expenses will receive only one reimbursement.


If you are a candidate with questions about reimbursement, please contact the college department where your interview has been or will be conducted.
