San Francisco, Calif. — Dec. 7
Altius Education announced a new education alliance between Ivy Bridge College and the United States Postal Service (USPS). The partnership will allow USPS employees to enroll in Ivy Bridge College’s online education programs and earn a degree while they continue to work full-time.
In addition to their professional development and leadership programs, USPS offers its employees the opportunity to pursue an education by taking advantage of the company’s education alliances. The newest alliance with Ivy Bridge College allows USPS employees to earn an associate degree online and take advantage of the school’s vast partner network in order to transfer to the four-year university of their choice.
Founded in a joint venture agreement between Altius Education and Tiffin University in Ohio, Ivy Bridge College is a transfer university that provides students with the academic preparation, personal support and university connections that help them gain entrance into a four-year bachelor’s degree program.
Students start their degree path by enrolling in one of Ivy Bridge College’s online associate degree programs specially designed to facilitate easy transfer into a four-year institution. Then, after receiving their associate degree, students can either maximize their credit hours by enrolling in one of more than 1,000 bachelor’s degree programs with Ivy Bridge’s partner institutions across the U.S. or they can take advantage of the college’s support services to apply for transfer to a program outside the network.
USPS employees enrolled in the program will be able to use all the services available to the Ivy Bridge College student body, including the mentorship and support provided by the college’s coaching program. In addition, employees who aren’t interested in a degree track can also enroll with Ivy Bridge College Extension and take single classes online for professional development.
