Hebrew SeniorLife to Offer New Tuition Discount Benefit to All Employees
Agreements with Drexel, Quinnipiac, Regis, and Other Higher Ed Institutions Expand Learning Opportunities for Employees
BOSTON – Hebrew SeniorLife, a nonprofit organization committed to improving the lives of older adults, today announced a Tuition Discount Benefit for all employees. Hebrew SeniorLife has signed agreements with seven institutions of higher education including Drexel University, Quinnipiac University, Regis College, Regent University, and University of Cincinnati.
The benefit is designed to make a quality education more affordable for all Hebrew SeniorLife employees and their families, and offers discounts ranging from 10% to 20% on both online and in-person classes for many different educational opportunities. The program allows employees to bundle the tuition discount with Hebrew SeniorLife’s tuition reimbursement and scholarship opportunities.
“We have longstanding partnerships with institutions of higher education focused on nursing and other programs but the impetus behind this new benefit program is to make college affordable and to ease the burden of going back to school, whatever coursework employees and their families want to take,” said Tabitha Fineberg, M.H.A., M.S.Ed., Administrative Director for Academic Programs, Hebrew SeniorLife. “We believe our best investment is in the future of our employees — and continuing education, whether or not it leads to a new degree, is a powerful incentive.”
The colleges and universities were selected based on their course offerings, including subject matter and a mix of online and in-person classes, and their ability to partner with Hebrew SeniorLife.
- Drexel University: Offers 5-50% discounts, depending on program of study, to employees and immediate family members.
- Quinnipiac University: Offers a 10% discount for employees only.
- Regent University: Offers a 15% discount for employees, spouses, or dependents (on tax returns).
- Regis College: Offers a 10% discount for online students and a 20% discount for on-campus students for employees and families.
- University of Cincinnati: Offers 10% discounts to employees and qualified family members.
Hebrew SeniorLife will continue to sign partnerships with other academic institutions to broaden the range of courses and degrees available to its employees.
