Union College Turns to Private Partner for Online Courses

Union College has teamed with a private partner in an effort to make affordable online courses more easily available to students.

The Kentucky-based school, which offers hybrid, face-to-face and distance courses, has partnered with StraighterLine.

"Union College supports innovative opportunities within our region that make a college education affordable and accessible; this partnership does that," said David Johns, vice president for academic affairs, in a prepared statement. "Students will benefit from this partnership by enrolling in online college courses through StraighterLine that easily transfer to one of Union's many degree programs."

"Union College is committed to providing convenience and affordability to students," said StraighterLine Founder and CEO Burck Smith, in a news release. "By partnering with StraighterLine, Union is furthering this mission with a self-paced, low cost option for earning college credit."
