Reduced Tuition

An affordable education is important. That’s why Partner Plus works with your employer to provide you with tuition discounts and special pricing, so you can get the degree you want at a price that works for you.

Options for financial aid are also available. Ensuring your education is affordable is important to us. To understand your financial aid options, first, fill out the FAFSA. Your education counselor will be able to help you understand what information you need to include on the form.

Free Credit Evaluation

If you have taken classes previously at one or more colleges, those credits may transfer, helping you to finish faster.

As part of the Partner Plus service, we offer a free unofficial credit evaluation, to help you understand how many credits you have that will transfer and what requirements those will fulfill.

In addition, we can collect your transcripts for you at no charge. This will help smooth the transfer process and ensure you are receiving as many credits as possible, so you can finish faster.

How It Works

With the Partner Plus program, you have choices in your education.

01. Select.

You will connect with a personal education counselor, who will ask you questions about your educational goals, your previous educational experience, and what you are looking for in an online program. Then, they will help you find the college that meets your needs and walk you through the application process.

02. Enroll.

Once you’ve been accepted in your program, your education counselor will walk you through your course ladder, so you know what classes you need to take when. Then, he or she will help you enroll in the right classes.

03. Learn.

Once in your program, you’ll learn skills you need to advance your career. Enjoy small class sizes and professors with real-world experience, in a supportive environment designed to help you succeed.

04. Graduate.

Once you begin classes, you will be assigned to a success coach. This coach will regularly check in with you, answering questions, helping you troubleshoot and making sure you are getting the most out of your education.
