Kaplan University-Hagerstown offers discounts to teachers

October 07, 2012

Kaplan University-Hagerstown and Washington County Public Schools recently signed an alliance agreement offering a 30 percent tuition reduction on graduate certificates and master’s degree programs in education, including Master of Science in Education and Master of Science in Education in Instructional Technology.

Eligible teachers pursuing degrees unrelated to education will receive a 10 percent tuition reduction, according to a news release from Kaplan.

“We are excited to partner with Washington County Public Schools to provide a flexible option for classroom teachers looking to further their education and advance their careers, while providing face-to-face, locally based support services,” Chris Motz, president of Kaplan University-Hagerstown, said in the release. “The online courses will fill a need for educators in this community.”

WCPS teachers also can apply for a full-tuition scholarship for Kaplan University’s Master of Science in Education programs. Recipients will be selected based on leadership skills, school and community activities, as well as other criteria. In addition, immediate family members of eligible teachers will receive a 10 percent tuition reduction on all Kaplan University programs.

“The school system values educational partnerships that benefit its staff and students, and this relationship with Kaplan University does that by enhancing learning opportunities for teachers who can then use new skills to enhance instructional opportunities in the classroom,” Schools Superintendent Clayton Wilcox said in the release.
