Save on tuition at Saint Mary’s University

You get tuition savings and waived application fee at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota.

City employees receive 10 percent off all online and on campus programs offered through the Schools of Graduate and Professional Programs.  This includes bachelor completion programs, certificate programs, and master’s and doctoral degrees. Many of the university’s degree programs apply to career opportunities within the City.  Some advanced degrees can be earned entirely online including a bachelor’s degree in nursing and an accelerated master’s degree in business administration.

A more promising future

The City’s educational partnership with Saint Mary’s is part of the response to findings from the 2014 My Minneapolis employee engagement survey. The survey found that creating a more promising future for employees would positively impact employee engagement. Discounted tuition rates provide access to more affordable educational opportunities, which can lead to career advancement.

By entering into these educational partnerships, the City also establishes closer relationships with local educational institutions and students, which can help the City create pathways for the workforce of the future.
