Thomas College, in partnership with The Maine Development Foundation, is pleased to offer discounts to students employed by participating Maine Employer's Initiative organizations. For all current employees of more than 140 participating businesses, the Thomas College Graduate and Continuing Education Division will:

  • Waive all application fees for new students
  • Provide 10% course discounts
  • Provide the student's first course free of charge

Discounts apply to part-time Bachelor's and Master's degree programs;  accelerated or full-time programs are not eligible. The "first course free" applies to eligible new students beginning in fall 2012.

The Maine Employer's Initiative  brings together Maine employers committed to taking  one more step to promote education and training opportunities for their employees.
