Your people are on a journey.
Partner with us to help them complete it.

The Anderson University Preferred Partnership Program enables our corporate and educational partners to attract, retain, and provide growth opportunities for their organization’s most significant resource– its employees.

Qualified employees can pursue a program of their choice and receive a tuition grant at the end of each semester of full-time enrollment (12 credit hours / semester for undergraduate programs or 6 credit hours / semester for graduate programs). Students should ensure their employment information is up-to-date in AU's Self-Service to receive the grant.

As professional and workforce needs continue to change, AU is opening its doors and providing the academic excellence, innovative learning experiences and commitment to hospitality that are the hallmarks of everyone’s journey at Anderson. We want to partner with you to promote your organization while connecting our students with businesses that share our values and purpose.
