How Can My Company Become an Education Partner with Sacred Heart University?

Our Director of Corporate Recruitment will meet with you or designated employee to review the Education Partnership Program.  Our Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) details the benefits and opportunities for part-time undergraduate degree completion at SHU, including a 10% tuition reduction for part-time undergraduate studies. 

Once the MOU is in place, your dedicated Education Partnership representative will be available to provide the materials needed to inform your organization about the program.  You will receive a link to a personalized company landing page from which your employees will be able to request information about continuing their academic study and professional development.
