WHAT IS STRAYER UNIVERSITY’S PRIMARY MISSION?
At Strayer, we pride ourselves on providing adult students affordable pathways to education. Our core tenets revolve around accessibility to quality education, affordability and completion. We design our classes around the working adult. That means classes are held when the student can attend; online coursework is designed so that the student can do it when it’s the best time for them; and time horizons to earning your degree are practical.
WHAT SETS STRAYER UNIVERSITY AND ITS OFFERINGS APART?
At the Montgomery campus, students can choose from a range of academic programs. Offering everything from associate’s to bachelor’s degrees, and even master’s degrees, there’s a program for everyone. Students can also take advantage of our MBA programs, including our Princeton Review-ranked Jack Welch Management Institute MBA and our Digital Entrepreneurship MBA in conjunction with Cheddar. Both are offered online only. Strayer University also has in-person MBA program options. Strayer believes that integrating online learning systems with the ability to connect in-person to staff and faculty members gives students the flexibility they need.
HOW IS STRAYER MAKING COLLEGE AFFORDABLE?
In addition to offering scholarships and participating in select federal financial aid programs, we also have our own program – The Strayer Graduation Fund – that can help bachelor’s degree students stay within their budget and increase rates of completion. Strayer’s Graduation Fund rewards achievement, encourages completion and persistence and can reduce the cost of a bachelor’s degree by up to 25 percent.
WHAT’S ON THE HORIZON FOR STRAYER UNIVERSITY IN MONTGOMERY?
We are offering classes on campus in the spring. Our Montgomery campus is leaner and more efficient than our traditional campus, with more space for students to collaborate with their peers and faculty, network, study and unwind. We created this new campus model because we have found that although most of our students take some or all of their courses online, they benefit from having the on-ground support and collaboration of the campus.
