Uber and Columbia College team up for discounted tuition program
Uber and Columbia College of Missouri today announced a unique partnership that will give thousands of Uber driver-partners in Missouri and around the U.S. a 15 percent discount on tuition. The discount will also be available to any current Columbia College of Missouri student who signs up to drive with Uber.
“Uber has a great global brand, and we’re pleased to partner with them,” said Dr. Scott Dalrymple, president of Columbia College of Missouri. “This initiative has the potential to change many lives.”
Tuition costs at Columbia College of Missouri are less than half the national average. The college offers associate, bachelor’s and master’s degrees on its main campus in Columbia, Missouri, through a robust online program, and via a network of 34 additional locations across the country. Eight-week classes begin six times a year.
“Uber is a natural fit for students looking to earn money while pursuing a degree. With no set hours or shifts, students can choose when they want to drive in a way that works around their lives and class schedule, not the other way around,” said Andy Hung, Uber Missouri General Manager. “We are thrilled to team up with Columbia College of Missouri to offer this program to drivers seeking an affordable way to further their education.”
To be eligible for the tuition discount, Uber driver-partners must complete at least one trip per month. For more information about how current students interested in driving with Uber and current driver-partners interested in applying to Columbia College of Missouri can take advantage of this offer, visit uber.ccis.edu.
