Golden Gate University and OnlineDegree.com Partner to Offer Adult Students an Affordable Path to Higher Education

Partnership allows prospective GGU students to meet general education requirements

:::

San Francisco, CA (June 17, 2020) – Golden Gate University (GGU) has partnered with OnlineDegree.com to give adult learners access to a more affordable and flexible education. This partnership allows prospective GGU students to meet general education requirements—tuition free— through OnlineDegree.com self-paced online courses. This reduces the total cost of obtaining a degree significantly and removes traditional barriers that often deny adult students their chance at obtaining a higher education.

OnlineDegree.com is a robust edtech platform that provides adult students the ability to receive college credit toward their degree at no charge to them.  Adult students, many of whom are faced with prohibitive family and work responsibilities, may obtain credits toward their degree through online courses without the need or expense of traditional applications, entrance exams, or tuition. OnlineDegree.com works with participating accredited universities to award transfer credit for students’ completion of the courses.

“Golden Gate University and OnlineDegree.com are both committed to creating a pathway to higher education that allows adult students the opportunity to reach their goals and improve their livelihood,” says Grant Aldrich, Founder of OnlineDegree.com. “This partnership solves a huge societal problem of improving access for these students who are often left behind because of barriers like cost and schedules.”

Golden Gate University’s mission has always been to create education and career pathways for adults who are balancing the complex demands of life. GGU provides high-quality, practice-based educational programs in an innovative and challenging learning environment that embraces professional ethics and diversity. It’s for these reasons GGU has been praised in national publications such as The New York Times, that has recently said of the institution, “Golden Gate should be a model for how other institutions can adapt to the newer, older face of American college students.”

“Since its founding, Golden Gate University has catered to the needs of adult professionals who are serious about advancing their careers,” says Marc Singer, Dean of the School of Undergraduate Studies at Golden Gate University. “Our partnership with OnlineDegree.com will allow us to help even more adult students achieve their professional goals.”

Through the partnership with OnlineDegree.com, prospective GGU students will have 44 units of available credit that could be applied toward their degree. OnlineDegree.com students will also receive an additional 10% off from the standard tuition rates when they enroll.

On the last day of Black History Month, we’re continuing to honor GGU’s own Black History in the Making. Greg Hodge, JD ’85, is a highly regarded community leader, social change activist, and organizational development consultant. His work focuses on the conditions and aspirations of boys and men of color and making racial equity actionable in organizations.

“I think Black History Month is really important, but I would want my new grandchild to not believe that February is the only month in the year when she’s supposed to learn about her history,” said Greg. “I want to impart that she’s supposed to know her history and the history of Indigenous Peoples, the Latinx community, the history of the Irish and Italians, the history of everybody as much as you can in the country to understand where the economic disparity and mistrust began.”

We continue to celebrate Black History Month by honoring GGU’s own Black History in the Making. We're proud of Robert Shoffner's rich history with GGU as director of MBA programs, director of the Small Business and Entrepreneurship Program, adjunct professor, and EMBA alum. He also served as director of the San Mateo Small Business Development Center and enjoyed a long career in financial services.

“I believe passionately in small business and I’m concerned with the outsized impact of the pandemic on minority businesses," Robert says. “Forty percent of Black businesses that were here last year are no longer here. I want to see those businesses survive and thrive because they are so important to their communities. If you’re going to have strong communities you have to have strong small businesses.”
