• BC - Business Connect
  • Business Connect

    The University of West Alabama, a public university founded in 1835, is introducing the UWA Business Connect partnership. This partnership brings your business and UWA into a close relationship. Once your business becomes a partner, UWA will offer your employees a tuition scholarship applicable to online degrees. As an additional service, UWA will update partners when the university introduces new degrees or develops other relevant services such as business related continuing education opportunities.

    The UWA Business Connect Scholarship is currently $100/credit hour for graduate degree programs and $50/credit hour for undergraduate degree programs. At current tuition levels (subject to change annually), the scholarship reduces a typical degree completion cost by $3,000 and a graduate degree by $3,000 (actual savings will vary by degree and amount of transfer credit). The table below shows the impact for the most common program durations:
