Chandler, AZ (December 23, 2021) – The University of Arizona Global Campus (UAGC) proudly announced today a new education partnership with the National Sheriffs’ Association. The new partnership offers 35% off tuition for bachelor's and master's programs for qualifying members of the National Sheriffs’ Association and their immediate family members. The program is open to its 22,000 members nationwide, and selection is subject to terms and conditions.
University President Paul Pastorek said, "We are extremely pleased to welcome the National Sheriffs’ Association to the UAGC family. There is no greater power than the power of education, and we take great pride in helping people strive to learn more. We look forward to watching sheriff department members from across the country discover new opportunities by choosing to continue their lifelong learning journey."
Sheriffs’ departments work to serve and protect citizens all around this country every day. The new partnership with UAGC provides a flexible online model and class format conducive to the scheduling demands that go along with working in this vital profession. Coursework can be completed from any location and students are afforded the opportunity to take classes that accommodate their lifestyle and schedule. Students can leverage their employer-sponsored tuition program to start or complete a degree through courses that, depending on the degree level, last five or six weeks which enable them to study at the times that work best for them.
The program is managed by Zovio Employer Solutions (ZES), which is an important service provided by Zovio. Zovio Employer Solutions helps more than 1,300 companies and organizations across the country optimize usage of their corporate tuition assistance programs in partnership with the University of Arizona Global Campus.
