Below are answers to Human Resources' most commonly asked questions.
You can change your address you can using the employee self service. However, this will only change the payroll system. You will need to come to the human resources office to complete address change forms for health benefits, life insurance and retirement.
To use the employee self service, log on to the TMCC website and go to the faculty/staff link. Under the column "Computing", click on Employee Self-Service Login. Enter your EMPLOYEE ID number and assigned PIN number (4-digit number at the bottom your check stub). If you do not have a PIN assigned or don't know your EMPLOYEE ID please contact Human Resources.
To change your beneficiaries you must come to the human resources office at the Dandini Campus, SIER LIB 200 to complete all beneficiary forms.
To stop payroll deductions please come by the Human Resources Office in SIER LIB 200 to complete the deduction cancellation card.
According to Nevada Administrative Code 284.5208, #3, a classified employee is expected to exhaust his/her compensatory time balance before he/she uses any available annual leave. This means that even though classified employees are allowed to accumulate compensatory time balances for the Winter Break, these balances are not being "set aside." If a classified employee requests to use annual leave between now and Winter Break, and that same classified employee has a compensatory time balance on his/her leave record, the employee must use the compensatory time before the annual leave.
Any classified employee who is in danger of losing annual leave at the end of the calendar year (year ending balance will exceed 240 hours) should take the annual leave first, before using accumulated compensatory time (NAC 284.539, #4).
If you work a 40 hour work week, regardless of days off, you would put in a leave slip for the 40 hour week indicating your schedule for the work week. You would also indicate you are off both Christmas Day and New Year's Day even if they are normally work days for you.
If the holiday falls on the scheduled day off of a classified employee, the appointing authority may adjust the work schedule of the employee for the week during which the holiday occurs (by substituting another day off, adjusting the work week in which the holiday falls, etc.); credit the employee with straight compensatory time; or pay the employee for the holiday at straight time if he is in paid status during his scheduled shift before the holiday. This pay is in addition to his/her normal week's pay.
Health benefits can be changed during the yearly open enrollment and if a qualifying event occurs. A qualifying event is considered marriage, birth, divorce or if a spouse loses his/her job. Different documents will be required for the qualifying event. Call Human Resources for details.
The Human Resources department is responsible for the recruitment of professional and classified employees, benefits management, salary administration and job classification, training and development, records management, employee relations, and human resources information systems.
The department also provides a variety of employees services, ranging from research to time and leave reporting to the interpretation of the Board of Regents code, state classified rules and related regulations.
The human resources office does not handle student employment.
Yes. You are allowed to put non-TMCC stamped letters in your TMCC department's mail bag and Mail Services will include them with the daily outgoing pickup from the U.S. Post Office.
Also, there is a gray USPS mailbox outside of Mail Services (RDMT 228) that you can place non-TMCC letters into. Mail Services checks and picks up the mail from the box at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. daily. The U.S. Post Office picks up all outgoing mail (personal and business) from TMCC at 1:30 p.m. daily.
Please contact Mail Services for any questions.
Professional employees and their dependents are eligible for Grant-In-Aid immediately. You will need to complete a Professional Grant-In-Aid Form which is available on our website or may be picked up in the Human Resources Office, SIER LIB 200. Once you have the form signed you need to bring it to human resources and we will issue you a card to take to the institution you, or your dependent will attend.
All classified employees are eligible for Grant-In-Aid. Dependents of classified employees are not eligible for Grant-In-Aid. You will need to complete a Classified Grant-In-Aid Form which is available on our website or may be picked up in the human resources office, SIER LIB 200. Completed forms should be submitted to the human resources office, SIER LIB 200.

Visit the fitness center Web page for information.
Major duties of part-time faculty include course preparation, teaching, student evaluation, and submitting reports as required by immediate supervisors or representatives of other departments. Your job responsibilities also include the following:
Additional information for Part-time Faculty:
Contact your department chair for resources to use in developing your syllabus and preparing instructional materials. Textbooks, manuals, TMCC catalog, curriculum guides, and internet resources are examples of instructional materials that may be helpful. Ask your department chair about sample syllabi designed for courses which are comparable to the course you will be teaching.
The Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) has established a grading scale to be used at all NSHE institutions.
An "Incomplete" may be given under the following circumstances. The student must have completed 75% with at least a grade of "C." There must be some verifiable, compelling reason for the lack of completion of the class. A conference between you and the student should be held prior to the due date for grades at the end of the semester. A detailed statement describing the work to be completed, approved by your division dean must be submitted in MyTMCC. This addendum will automatically be sent to the dean for approval. After the dean makes a decision, a response will be sent via email to you and admissions and records.
Please check with your department chair before issuing an incomplete. If you are teaching an individualized developmental class, consult with your immediate supervisor for special regulations regarding grading in these classes. Students have one semester in which to make up assignments or examinations for a course in which they receive an incomplete. The instructor must submit the card to change the incomplete to a grade by the same date that final grades are due for the semester. Summer session is not defined as a semester for this purpose.
If you discover an error, or feel the grade should be changed after grades have been entered, submit a grade change card by contacting your division/department administrative assistant.
Faculty members may access their class lists through MyTMCC. Every student in the class MUST be on the class list. A student in the class that is not on the class list must complete registration before attending class.
Students may add classes anytime during the published registration period. Late starting classes may be added using MyTMCC up until the published start date of the class. Written permission of the division offering the class is required to add any class after the registration period or after the start date of the class.
You may not add a student yourself. Contact your department chair and/or department administrative assistant for help.
Instructors are required to attend every regularly scheduled class session. If you know ahead of time that you will be absent, contact your division/department chair or coordinator.
If you are unable to teach at the last minute due to illness or an emergency, contact your division/department chair or department administrative assistant to post a notice on the canceled class Web page, post a sign on the door and call students if there is enough time given and you may also want to send your students an email through grade book.
If you must cancel a class before 8:00 a.m. or after 5:00 p.m. on the day of class, please contact the academic support center at 775-673-7000 for Dandini Campus, Meadowood Center at 775-829-9004, High Tech Center at Redfield at 775-850-4000 and IGT Applied Technology Center at 775-856-5300.
You are responsible for notifying your department of your absence. If possible, it's always best to notify your department chair and students well in advance of an absence. Class sessions must meet for the time indicated in the schedule, and for their full duration as stated in the class schedule.
Regular attendance is required for college classes, but attendance requirements vary from one division/department to another. Check with your division/department office for attendance policies. Your attendance requirements should be clearly stated in the course syllabus.
You may talk to the student about any excessive absences or refer them to an academic adviser.
Threat of Imminent Injury: Call 911 - if possible, evacuate the area
Incident where a mild threat of violence occurs, report incident immediately to TMCC Police Department at: 775-674-7900.
All classrooms and labs are to be locked before and after class. All part-time faculty members are required to have their own key to each of their classrooms. Please go to the academic support center if you do not have a classroom key and apply for one.
Instructors may email their students through MyTMCC.
The faculty member can privately and tactfully refer a potential student to the Disability Resource Center (DRC) who will determine if they qualify for services. The DRC website offers a wealth of information to educate faculty and prospective students, downloadable forms and a link to contact the DRC directly to schedule a confidential intake interview. Some students with disabilities may elect not to register at the DRC, which is a personal choice. Non-registered DRC students are not entitled to receive free accommodations or services at TMCC.
Faculty should not provide accommodations directly to students who are not registered at the DRC. This protects both the college and students requesting services. The professionally trained DRC staff is responsible for evaluating presented documentation in order to determine if a student qualifies for services, and which services are appropriate in light of their disability. After the DRC staff assigns accommodations, they assist to ensure services are offered in a timely manner.
The course instructor will be notified by a DRC generated hard copy service letter which will be delivered by the student to the faculty member. Alternately, the services letter may be sent by the DRC staff through an email correspondence. This letter will outline assigned accommodations. Faculty members are encouraged to correspond with the DRC staff when questions regarding accommodations arise.
Faculty will include in their class syllabus each semester the following statement:
Qualified, self-identified students with documented disabilities have the right to free accommodations to ensure equal access to educational opportunities at Truckee Meadows Community College. For assistance, contact TMCC's Disability Resource Center.
There are currently 24 Xerox multi-function machines located around TMCC. Each of these machines is set up to copy, print, fax and scan to email. A five-digit PIN is required to access any of these functions. Xerox PINs are assigned by central services. Each PIN is unique and issued to an individual, not a department or program. To obtain a PIN, an authorized email by your departmental support person or supervisor must be sent to central services. A printed confirmation letter will be sent to you once the PIN has been issued. This code number is given only to you, and is not to be used for personal copying. Please plan ahead to allow adequate time to make copies.
The Copy Center offers a full range of copy services: copying, in black on white, full color copies, comb and thermal binding, folding, envelope stuffing, both single and triple hole punching, stapling, laminating and booklet making. Personal employee and student copying services are available and can be paid for at the time of service. For assistance or more information, please contact the Copy Center.
Contact your department office first. Your department office can provide you with textbooks, pens, pencils, chalk, markers, scantron forms and paper, etc. If your department is unavailable, contact the academic support center. Whenever possible, please plan ahead, many offices are not open in the evenings.
Course evaluations are completed every semester by your students. You will receive your course evaluation packet in your TMCC mailbox or if you have an online class, it will be emailed to you. If you have not received your evaluation packet, please contact the academic support center.
Each class must be evaluated every semester. There will be a due date on the packet and you are expected to have a student return your completed evaluation(s) to the academic support center.
Please take the packet to your class and have a student pass out the information. Encourage students to fill out the evaluation completely, including comments with a pencil or pen. Please leave the classroom while the students are working on the evaluations. Have the student collect and seal the evaluations in the evaluation packet and return it to the academic support center, as soon as the class is over for the day.
Full-time Faculty: Employees on a salaried contract will be paid on the last day of the month.
Part-time Faculty: Semester salaries are divided into equal monthly installments. Paychecks are issued on the last business day of each month. Those who are on an hourly contract will be paid on the 10th and 25th of each month. All pay checks will be mailed unless direct deposit has been set up or arrangements made with Accounting Services to hold the check until picked up.
Part-time Faculty: Hourly employees: Timesheets are submitted on specific dates and paid on a semi-monthly basis.
Paychecks will be mailed to your home address unless requested in writing to be held in the controller's office. Your direct deposit will show up in your bank account on the day you should be paid.
TMCC strongly encourages the use of the direct deposit option. Please contact Human Resources to set up your direct deposit account, or you can use TMCC Employee Self Service. Once set up please allow two pay periods for direct deposit to become effective. Paychecks will be mailed to your home address on file with Human Resources until direct deposit takes effect.
Grant-In-Aid (Tuition Waiver)
Grants-In-Aid are available to pay a portion of the registration fees for part-time instructors. The number of credit hours for a tuition waiver is based upon the number of credits taught during the preceding semester, not to exceed six credit hours. Credits do not accumulate from semester to semester. Fall and spring course loads are used to determine eligibility. These waivers are valid only for courses offered by TMCC and may not be used for Workforce Development and Continuing Education courses, or courses offered during the summer.
In order to apply for a Grant-In-Aid, please complete and submit a Grant-In-Aid form. This form and additional information about tuition waivers are available in the academic support center.
TMCC'S Fitness Center
The TMCC fitness center is open in the V. James Eardley Student Services Center on the college's Dandini Campus.
Please check out the Fitness Center for hours and location.
Memberships/fees may be purchased at Accounting Services.
For additional benefits for full-time instructors, please contact your department or Human Resources.
Faculty and staff may obtain an employee ID card at the academic support center. Please bring a valid government issued photo ID.

In keeping with the TMCC mission statement, the professional development office provides access for lifelong learning opportunities through a variety of programs that are open to all members of the TMCC community.
Workshops and training opportunities are designed to provide all staff members with an opportunity to expand their knowledge, increase expertise, experience new technology and continue their lifelong learning process.
Workshops and programs are offered in the following areas:
Workshops can be customized to specific departmental or work group needs.
If you've chosen to not use direct deposit, your payroll debit card will be mailed directly to you from Bank of America at your address on record in the HR/Payroll system (listed on your paper paycheck). The card is issued by Bank of America under the NSHE payroll debit card program, but it is an individual FDIC bank account issued, maintained and serviced by Bank of America.
Visit our Payroll Procedures Web page for complete instructions and information on direct deposits for TMCC employees.
All employees will continue to be able to enroll in traditional direct deposit to receive their payroll funds.
Employees who receive a payroll debit card can also change their payroll payment to another bank account (traditional direct deposit) at any time for future payroll disbursements.
Yes. The payroll debit card is an FDIC insured bank account, but it is not a checking account so the bank will issue cards to all employees.
No. Only employees who are not paid via direct deposit are issued a payroll debit card.
No. The card is a prepaid debit card. Although it can be used for retail purchases as a credit card (where VISA cards are accepted), it is not a credit card and the bank does not permit overdraft spending on the payroll debit card.
Contact Bank of America customer service and a replacement card will be issued. The fee for card replacement is $5.00.
Unlike lost paychecks, which require a one week waiting period, you may arrange a 'fee-free' funds transfer to another bank account by accessing your debit card bank account via Bank of America's online banking service.
Alternatively, Bank of America customer service can arrange an emergency cash transfer for you to receive cash prior to receiving your replacement debit card. There is a $15.00 fee for this service.
You should treat your card with care. Guard the card account number and PIN number the same way you would cash or any credit card. Do not share your card number or PIN number with anyone.
If you lose your card or believe it to be stolen, you must immediately contact Bank of America customer service personnel. Bank of America will cancel your old card, move the remaining balance to a new card, and then mail the new card to you at the address on file.
There are several ways to access the full value of your paycheck without incurring fees.
The bank provides one free weekly cash withdrawal up to the full value in your account from any VISA member bank (including but not limited to Bank of America branches).
Withdrawals can be made from Bank of America ATMs located within the United States without fees, and the card can be used for U.S. retail purchases (in stores and online) anywhere VISA is accepted without incurring fees.
Once a position has been identified to be filled, it will be posted to our website.

See also: Winter Break Guidelines (Memo)
Everyone who would normally work during the period between Christmas and New Years will be affected by this program. If you elect to work during this time, please let your supervisor and human resources know by using the above form.
Full-time faculty on "B" contracts and part-time faculty are already scheduled off during that time.
It is important to remember that although the Dandini Campus, IGT Applied Technology Center and High Tech Center at Redfield sites will be closed, the college is not mandating that employees take time off or that they must work. Instead, we are simply offering work and schedule options during the period in question. It is important for employees to be in constant contact with their supervisor regarding all work and schedule options.
All classified employees and non-exempt professional employees may accrue compensatory time.
Student employees, administrative and academic faculty may not earn compensatory time.
Administrative and academic faculty on 'A' contracts have the option to either use annual leave, work from home, or work in a reassigned area, given the nature of the work. Approval from the supervisor is required if working from home or in a reassigned area.
See Also: Winter Break Guidelines
Plan to put in leave for hours you normally work each week, or request to work at the Meadowood site on your normally scheduled days off.
All part-time classified employees must be compensated with a cash payment when they work additional regular hours. These are defined as any hours worked up to full time, which is up to 8 hours in a day or 40 hours in a week, whichever comes first. There is no such thing as "straight" compensatory time. When a part-time classified employee works additional regular hours and is paid for them, that employee earns additional annual leave and sick leave as well as additional retirement service credit. It may be beneficial to alter a part-time employee's work schedule to include at least one 8-hour day. This will allow the part-time employee to work in overtime status more easily and provide him/her with the same opportunity to accrue compensatory time as the full-time employee. Contact Human Resources if you have questions regarding Winter Break hours for part-time employees.
Student employees and administrative and academic faculty may not earn compensatory time. Faculty on 'B' contracts are not contracted to work during the Winter Break week.
Only those classified employees who have been employed by the State of Nevada (including TMCC) for more than six consecutive months are eligible to use their accrued annual leave. If by the time the Winter Break occurs, you don't have six months of continuous employment, you must make other arrangements to remain in paid status during the break or to continue to work.
Leave without pay is another option for classified employees who either don't have enough accrued leave or who choose not to use accrued leave. However, employees should be aware of the fact that there are a number of benefits affected by taking leave without pay, and that the use of leave without pay should be considered very carefully. First, if a classified employee is in unpaid status, the entire shift preceding the holiday, he/she is ineligible for holiday pay. Also, any time a classified employee is on leave without pay, his/her leave accrual is reduced for the month on a pro-rata basis. Service credit for retirement purposes is also reduced for the month. The Public Employees Retirement System will only credit an employee with time in paid status.
See Also: Winter Break Guidelines
Yes, you may. Simply indicate the hours and the type of leave to be used on your leave form.
Working additional hours for the accrual of compensatory time requires the agreement of both the supervisor and the employee in writing before the time is worked. Working compensatory time will be helpful in allowing staff to get caught up on work in advance of the college's Winter Break, thus minimizing the burden of lost work time. All departments are encouraged to do so for this specific purpose.
For the comp time required for the current year, please see the Winter Break Guidelines document for the current year.
