Alvernia University is joining forces with Montgomery County Community College’s University Center.

This partnership of higher education institutions expands advanced-degree opportunities for students, employees, and community members.

“The addition of MCCC as a partner through their University Center expands our commitment to affordable and accessible education in the Philadelphia Region,” said Alvernia University President, Glynis A. Fitzgerald.

Alvernia is offering a total of 12 online programs, including eight bachelor’s degree programs, three master’s degree programs and one certificate program through the partnership. MCCC alumni and employees are eligible for a 20 percent tuition discount if they meet all admissions requirements.

The partnership with Alvernia provides affordable tuition, an accelerated format, convenient scheduling and a supportive environment for all students, especially working adults from the Montgomery County community. The programs are available for full-time and part-time students.

“MCCC was an obvious choice for a partnership in the Philadelphia area, which we’ve been in for decades,” said Alvernia University Vice President for Graduate & Adult Education, Gaetan T. Giannini.

“In addition, the adult learner is important to our success in the future. There are more than 30 million Americans that have some college credit, but no credential and we’ve got the ability to help close that gap through partnerships like this. In doing that, we also understand the importance of affordability and meeting students where they are, so we’ve expanded our footprint to be in the place where students need to study.”

MCCC’s University Center offers advanced degrees – bachelor’s, master’s and certifications – on its Blue Bell and Pottstown campuses and online through its collaborations with Alvernia University, Albright College and Chestnut Hill College.
