Athens State University is pleased to announce that it has entered into a new learning partnership with the Athens-Limestone County Chamber of Commerce, its second chamber learning partner. Benefits of learning partnerships include a 10% tuition discount on all classes, waived application fee, and complimentary evaluation of previously earned educational credits and training/professional certifications/portfolio for consideration of transfer credit. These benefits will extend to the parents, spouse, and children of the learning partner employee/member, including the employees of over 500 Athens-Limestone County Chamber member organizations.
The Athens-Limestone County Chamber of Commerce serves as the voice of the business community in support of increasing prosperity for our community by supporting businesses, industries, and agriculture to advance economic growth. The Chamber has 547 members to date.
“We are always looking for ways to provide beneficial programs and events for our members, and are thrilled to partner with Athens State University on this incredibly valuable learning opportunity,” said Pammie Jimmar, President of the Athens-Limestone County Chamber of Commerce. “We hope our members will take advantage of this offering and look forward to working closely with Athens State on even more projects in the future!”
“As both supporters and partners with the Athens-Limestone Chamber of Commerce, Athens State University is proud to bring the Learning Partnership Program to chamber members and their immediate family,” said Dr. Keith Ferguson, Vice President for University Advancement. “We can think of no better way to invest in our local community than by providing quality higher education opportunities at a reduced rate.”
