What does that mean?
Lenoir-Rhyne will partner with you to encourage your employees to pursue a Bachelor's or a Master's degree by providing discount incentives. This mutually beneficial agreement will help you to build a more highly prepared workforce while we work together to build graduate and adult programs that are relevant to today's market. Let's work together to strengthen your workforce! Partner with us in Graduate and Adult Education!
LR offers over 20 graduate programs on three campuses (Hickory and Asheville, NC, as well as Columbia, SC) and online, plus 3 programs designed especially for the adult learner. And that number is growing! Detailed information on all programs can be found online at www.lr.edu.
Ok, how does this work?
In the first year of a partnership with the Hickory campus, employees receive a 10% discount that is then adjusted each year based on total number of credit hours taken by the affiliate's employees the previous year.
- A-1 level: If zero hours in the fiscal year—discount rate for the upcoming year for any credit hours is 5%;
- A-2 level: If 1-70 hours, 10% discount on all hours taken;
- A-3 level: If 71-140 hours, 15% discount on all hours taken;
- A-4 level: If 141 hours or greater, 20% discount on all hours taken.
