Payment Method: B (formerly Payment Method: A)
To request reimbursement for work completed for your approved Project, please email so that the DECT office can initiate the Request for Reimbursement form for reimbursement.



If an award is not used in the term for which you applied, your award will automatically be closed at the end of that term, and the monies will be returned to the pool of funds that may be awarded to other colleges. If you have unused funds by the end of a term and still have captioning/transcription needs, please submit a new application for the following term. For example, you were awarded $1,000 for a project to be completed during the Spring semester and you did not use these funds before the end of the Spring semester. Your award will automatically expire and the $1,000 will return to the pool of monies that may be awarded to other colleges. If it turns out that the project you planned for Spring will be delayed until the Fall semester, please submit a new application for Fall.
