Education Alliance partners save on tuition at PTC.
If you are an employee of an Education Alliance partner company, you may be eligible to take advantage of a tuition grant that can range from 5%-15% depending on your eligibility.
How does the program work?
Eligibility: Employees and/or their immediate family members are eligible. “Immediate family” is defined as spouses and children/step-children who are classified as dependents.
- Your employer must be an Education Alliance member prior to your initial visit.
- You must be employed part- or full-time prior to your first visit to PTC.
Standard Education Alliance Partners: You will receive a 10% grant for full time employment or 5% for part time employment.
Advisory Board Education Alliance Partners: You will receive a 15% grant for full time employment or 8% for part time employment.
Grant awards* are based on NET tuition (after state and federal grants) and will not be made until all financial aid paperwork is completed. If you miss the PHEAA (Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency) deadline, you will be awarded an Education Alliance grant based on what the NET tuition should have been had you submitted your application on time.
