ROCKY MOUNT, NORTH CAROLINA – North Carolina Wesleyan University (NCWU) and Wake Technical Community College (Wake Tech) today expanded their relationship by signing an education partnership agreement that supports undergraduate and graduate degree completion opportunities for Wake Tech employees.
“This agreement is the first of many that we hope to institute with our Wesleyan Works community college partners. We have enjoyed a 10–year relationship with Wake Tech and look forward to enhancing the higher education opportunities for their employees,” stated President Dr. Evan D. Duff.
This partnership allows Wake Tech employees to receive exclusive tuition rates to attend NCWU. The dynamic programs allow Wake Tech employees to remain employed while attending classes online or one night per week. One-on-one advising support and mentoring will also be provided.
“We value lifelong learning at Wake Tech, so we are excited to expand our partnership with North Carolina Wesleyan University to now include undergraduate and graduate degree opportunities for our faculty and staff at reduced tuition rates,” said Wake Tech President Dr. Scott Ralls. “Employees who would like to further their education now have an affordable and accessible option.”
Wake Tech and North Carolina Wesleyan already have existing transfer agreements in place that allow Wake Tech students to transfer to North Carolina Wesleyan and complete a bachelor’s degree.
NCWU will offer a reduced tuition rate of $350 per credit hour for undergraduate programs and $400 per credit hour for graduate programs to the employees of select community college partners.
