Mount Mercy University is partnering with local employers to offer an additional ten percent off tuition for employees* who enroll in any of the university’s graduate, accelerated or online programs.

Graduate and Accelerated Recruiter Tyler Poldervaart said tuition discount is a continuation of an already strong partnership between the university and local businesses.

“Mount Mercy University and these organizations have enjoyed a long and mutually beneficial partnership through internships, relevant academic programs, employment opportunities for students and a variety of other shared benefits,” Poldervaart said. “The additional discount helps to add more value for both Mount Mercy and the community as a whole.”

The discount is in addition to tuition assistance or reimbursement already provided by the employer.
