John Brown University and the city of Siloam Springs have partnered to offer a 10-percent tuition discount to eligible city employees.
The discount is available for JBU's graduate and online undergraduate programs, and to qualify for the discount, city employees must either be working full-time positions or permanent part-time positions, according to a JBU press release. Those who are eligible can earn bachelor's degrees in business administration, liberal arts, organizational leadership and psychology.
The registered nurse (RN) and bachelor's of science in nursing (BSN) can also be earned through JBU's online undergraduate program, and graduate programs include business, healthcare administration, cybersecurity, outdoor program management, leadership and design thinking and innovation, the press release states. In addition, all degrees offered through the partnership can be completed entirely online or through a combination of online and evening classes, which would take place at the JBU Rogers Center.
"JBU's main campus since its founding has called Siloam Springs home," said Dr. Ed Ericson, JBU vice president for academic affairs. "As such, we've been able to create a long history of partnerships with the city that have benefited the local community. We're excited to provide opportunities that expand JBU's mission to reach city employees as they further their educational pursuits and career goals."
JBU also offers a tuition discount to employees through business partnerships with various organizations across Northwest Arkansas, including Mercy Hospital Northwest Arkansas, J.B. Hunt, Sam's Club and Walmart.
