Under the partnership agreements, employees at these organizations will get a 10 percent tuition discount and a waived application fee. In exchange, these organizations encourage their employees to advance their careers by continuing their education with Saint Mary’s, and we have a presence at their educational fairs/expo events to promote our programs. This ongoing work is supported by our partnership with Wiley Education Services and led by Kyle Goodwin, our new collegiate partnership manager. Priority 1 work will continue in an effort to deepen relationships, help drive enrollment, and identify other partnership opportunities.
