Malvern, PA (PRWEB) December 09, 2014
As part of their College Degree Program, The Institutes have partnered with Trident University International to offer students an opportunity to receive college credit for courses taken as part of The Institutes’ designation programs.
This partnership allows students to apply their Institutes course work toward an undergraduate or graduate degree while also:
- Gaining both college-level and practical insurance knowledge to use in their day-to-day jobs
- Saving on the personal cost or cost to employers of pursuing an advanced degree
- Taking advantage of transfer credit, shortening the time required to earn their degree
Additionally, The Institutes' agreement with Trident University enables students to receive an 11 to 36 percent discount on their tuition depending on the program of choice, subject to admissibility.
“Our partnership with Trident University eliminates barriers that our students—many of whom are working adults—encounter when considering advanced education,” said Connor Harrison, MS, CPCU, AU, ARe, AIAF, AAM, director of custom products at The Institutes. “Most students and their employers are concerned with saving time and money. With partnerships like this, The Institutes are supporting insurance professionals in the workplace."
