Reported by Education Dive, The John Dee Bright College will begin offering associate degrees in the fall of 2021 with an annual tuition of $18,500, less than half the tuition price at Drake University itself.
The takeaway? While this 2-year college alternative is still not the least expensive local option for a student, will this strategy help create a new pathway for many students – one much more likely to end at our 4-year institutions than those who attend a community college first?
