I wish more companies were doing this when I went through school, because I would have definitely taken advantage of it. Amazon just announced that their employees will soon be able to attend UNCC for free.
According to WCNC, Amazon announced they will be spending $1.2 billion by 2025 to help their employee’s get higher education. This means that part-time employees have access to free tuition. UNCC offers 170 different Bachelor programs that students will be able to choose from.
Central Piedmont Community College, and Rowan Cabarrus Community College are already partnered with Amazon, allowing employees to take classes with their tuition covered through Amazon. Now, those students will be able to transfer to UNCC for more education opportunity.
