  • Drexel University Online Announces Partnership with Freedom Valley YMCA

    Tuesday, September 12, 2017

    Drexel University Online officially announces a partnership with the Philadelphia Freedom Valley YMCA, which will provide an opportunity for Philadelphia Freedom Valley YMCA members to earn a degree online at a significant tuition savings.

    Under this agreement, further detailed on Drexel University Online’s website, members of the Philadelphia Freedom Valley YMCA will be eligible for a 10-40% tuition savings on Drexel’s online programs, with no application fee. These tuition savings coincide with all tuition reimbursements, loans and grants. A deferred tuition payment plan through Drexel may also be available.

    “We are very excited to collaborate on this partnership between the Philadelphia Freedom Valley YMCA and Drexel University,” said Jennifer Balentine, the benefits manager for the Philadelphia Freedom Valley YMCA. “Being an alumna myself and having earned my Master’s Degree from the online program, I can attest that the teaching and tools offered by Drexel are an opportunity for personal and professional growth one should not miss. We hope that this partnership will be another way for us to demonstrate to our staff how we wish to invest in their future”
