D’Youville Offers Tuition Discounts Through Corporate Partnership Program
Buffalo, New York – May 27, 2021 – D’Youville has launched a Corporate Partnership Program to help local businesses offer generous educational benefits to their employees and their families.
Corporate Partners will be eligible to offer their employees, their spouse, and dependents a 25% tuition discount for in-seat D’Youville programs or 10% tuition reduction for online programs. The program is available to any company with 100 or more employees and is completely free.
“As we start to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, one of the challenges companies are facing is attracting and retaining employees. Our Corporate Partners will be able to offer their employees a terrific benefit of reduced tuition not only for their employees, but their families as well,” said Jeremiah Grabowski, D’Youville’s dean of online learning.
“Studies show that U.S. businesses lose more than $1 trillion each year due to employee turnover,” Grabowski said. “However, companies that offer educational benefits save $1.29 for every $1 invested.
D’Youville is ranked the No. 1 private university in Western New York according to U.S. News and World Report, is rated a top choice for veterans, and has the highest post-graduate salaries of any local college.
The Corporate Partnership Program offers discounts for both bachelor’s and master’s degree programs, with the exception of Physician Assistant and Nurse Practitioner graduate programs.
Additionally, D’Youville has partnered with Peanut Butter, an employee benefit program, which offers student loan assistance as a benefit. “Traditional benefits have lost relevance to young workers. Health insurance and retirement plans seldom sway employees’ decisions to join or stay with a company,” said David Aronson, CEO of Peanut Butter. “With Peanut Butter’s comprehensive Student Loan Assistance platform, employees receive the resources to manage their student loans and employers can seamlessly contribute to the repayment of student debt.”
D’Youville recently added student loan assistance as a benefit to its own employees, and all program partners automatically receive a percentage off all fees during the first year of service with Peanut Butter.
