KC United

LENEXA, Kan. October 18, 2019 — Online education pioneer Grantham University recently entered into an educational partnership with KC UNITED!, an organization that helps young athletes develop the skills they need to excel in sports, school and the community. The partnership will provide a number of educational benefits to KC UNITED! associates and their families.

Under the agreement, KC UNITED! associates and their qualifying family members can take advantage of: reduced tuition for Grantham’s more than 50 undergraduate- and graduate-level degree and certificate programs; a complimentary Prior Learning Assessment and professional development session; and a $0-down, 90-day tuition deferral program.

“Through sports and mentorship, KC UNITED! gives young people the resources they need to have successful futures,” said Tabitha Davis, Grantham University’s director of university outreach. “Grantham helps adults and their families achieve similar outcomes through higher education.”

This new partnership is one of more than 50 similar programs in which Grantham has engaged. Those agreements have been formed with various corporations, associations, colleges and community organizations in the region, as well as across the nation.

"Grantham's online convenience is ideal for KC UNITED! associates and all working professionals who want to pursue a higher education but need a more flexible scheduling option," said Davis. "We also offer 24/7 tutoring and dedicated support to help ensure their success through graduation and beyond."
