“The Corporate Partnership program has been a game changer by providing more access and support for individuals to enhance their skills and for employers to offer even more benefits to employees during this unprecedented time,” said Jennifer Moore, associate vice president for adult and undergraduate enrollment at Roberts Wesleyan College. “Aligned with our goal of providing accessible education, Roberts made the significant decision to maintain the corporate partnership tuition discount for everyone who was enrolled before COVID-19, regardless of whether a student was furloughed or downsized due to the impact of the pandemic on their employment status. We truly want to be a community partner through this crisis and beyond and inspire individuals to develop new skills to support today's rapidly changing workplace landscape.”

With this partnership, qualifying employees will receive the following benefits at Roberts Wesleyan College:

  • An exclusive 25% discount for benefit-eligible employees, spouses and dependents, which can be combined with corporate tuition-assistance programs
  • Access to 99+ areas of study
  • Accelerated, part-time and full-time classroom and online options designed to support work-life balance
  • Experience and mentorship with faculty who have real-world perspectives and who focus on students and their success
