Phelps County Regional Medical Center (PCRMC) employees are now eligible for a 5 percent discount on tuition under a new partnership between WGU Missouri and the Rolla-based health care facility.
Under the terms of the agreement, PCRMC employees can receive a 5 percent discount for up to two years to pursue a bachelor’s or master’s degree at WGU Missouri.
The tuition discount reduces WGU Missouri’s tuition of about $6,000 per year for most programs.
“We are pleased to partner with PCRMC and provide its employees with greater access to high-quality, affordable education,” said Dr. Angie Besendorfer, chancellor of WGU Missouri.
WGU Missouri, the state affiliate of Western Governors University, is a nonprofit online university established by the state.
PCRMC employees also will be eligible for the Healthcare Partners Fund, with scholarships of up to $2,500.
