Workforce Development through Higher Education

Develop and promote talent through cost-effective, competency-based higher education for working adults.

Employers across the country are bringing College for America to their employees to help them earn a degree from an accredited, nonprofit college—and develop the skills needed to advance their careers.


Our fully accredited degree programs are specifically designed to fit into busy lives, develop skills that are immediately applicable in the workplace, and be extraordinarily cost effective at just $3,000 a year (or less) tuition per student.

Here’s how we make college work for working adults and their employers:

  • Immediately Applicable

    Competency-based and project-based degrees are engineered to be directly applicable in the workplace.

  • For Busy Lives

    Flexible, self-paced projects completed online fit around job and family responsibilities, so students can stay engaged and advance more quickly through subjects they already know.

  • Cost Effective

    A low tuition of $3,000 a year makes a degree possible for every nondegreed and frontline employee—often within existing tuition assistance budgets.

No Additional Fees or Costs

There are no additional fees and no costs for an employer to partner with College for America. Enrollment is only open to the staff of employers who have partnered with CfA. Partners receive access to CfA degree programs for their employees, as well as:

  • A dedicated account manager
  • Custom, cobranded marketing materials
  • Engagement reporting
  • Press and media opportunities

I know of no other degree in the country that really focuses on the right blocks of knowledge in practice management like College for America’s bachelor’s degree in healthcare management.

We’re able to get far more people on the path to a degree than what would have been possible through a traditional college program.

As an employer, I know that when an employee finishes a CfA degree, he or she will be able to demonstrate specific competencies that are applicable to the job. In terms of ROI—CfA is stronger than general college courses, so becoming a partner was a no-brainer for us.
