Lower Tuition Announced for M.Ed. Program

CINCINNATI – As part of its ongoing mission to offer socially relevant and transformational degree opportunities and make them more accessible, and in effort to reach more teachers seeking higher education, Union Institute & University (UI&U) today announced a substantial reduction in its tuition for the Master of Education program, a one-year, accredited, online degree program.

Effective for the April 30, 2012 start date, students enrolled in the M.Ed. online program will pay $399 per credit hour, a reduction of $158 from the original cost of $557 per credit hour. This 28 percent reduction allows M.Ed. students to save more than $5,600 in tuition costs throughout their time in the program.

“Union certainly understands the value of education and how great teachers can impact future generations,” said UI&U President Dr. Roger H. Sublett. “This lowered rate helps us to promote our goal to reach and support great teachers and school districts across the country with a more affordable M.Ed. program, and also to offer a program that encourages and prepares them to become great teachers and great leaders.”

Union’s M.Ed. curriculum embeds National Board core propositions, and has an in-depth focus on social responsibility and leadership. Its online delivery allows students to pursue their graduate degree while maintaining professional and personal responsibilities and follows a 16-week trimester calendar, divided into two eight-week sessions. Students may be eligible for transfer credits and, once graduated, are prepared to participate in the certification process offered through the National Board.

The university is currently accepting applications for the Spring 2012 trimester that begins April 30. For more information about UI&U’s M.Ed. online program contact Josefina Rosario, M.Ed. admissions counselor at 888-828-8575, ext. 2172, or josefina.rosario@myunion.edu.
