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.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, GGU moved all classes and services online. But did you know that GGU has been offering online classes to students since 1993? Instructional designer Kate Hance joined GGU in 1999 and reflects on how online courses have changed. 🖥️

"GGU started really early with online learning and instructional design long before most institutions. The ability to collaborate on a virtual white board wasn’t there 20 years ago! It’s a lot easier now for students to work, collaborate, and create content together. Communication used to be more difficult because you would have to use chat boards. With the advent of Zoom, instant messaging, and more responsiveness in online classes, we can focus on the social connection and the collaborative work that helps everyone understand the concepts they are learning. 👩🏿‍💻 👨🏿‍💻

The online program has always reached students who wouldn’t be able to go back to school without these flexible technology-supported options that allowed them to get a degree, improve their life, and do something that they didn’t have the opportunity to do before. For me, that’s the real purpose of technology, to meet people where they are and help people meet their own goals." 🎓

I was the beneficiary of GGU’s online learning technology investments when I was pursuing my M.S. in Integrated Marketing Communication (2011-2013). So grateful to have been able to learn from GGU’s wonderful professors while still working full time - and living all the way in Indiana!

USAID worked with Mindanao State University-General Santos Campus, Palawan State University, and Ateneo De Zamboanga University to establish an Urban Development Learning Program that will enhance the skills and knowledge of local urban planning experts by linking the practical experience of local government with the technical expertise of these universities. From July to August 2021, USAID and GGU hosted separate workshops to align the curriculum of each partner university to the needs of their respective local governments and set concrete steps for short to long-term implementation.
