NFL Alumni and Peirce College Partner to Expand Access to Affordable and Flexible Degrees

Peirce College is collaborating with the NFL Alumni to provide retired NFL players, coaches, cheerleaders and their spouses expanded access to flexible, affordable undergraduate degree completion and graduate programs designed to prepare for transition to a new career after leaving the gridiron.

On Wednesday, NFL Alumni CEO Beasley Reece and President and CEO of Peirce College Dr. Mary Ellen Caro signed a partnership agreement that has created a pathway for new students, especially those who joined the league before completing their bachelor’s degree.

This partnership opens the door for members and employees of the NFL Alumni to affordable, flexible degree programs and certificates that are designed specifically for working adults. With Peirce’s personalized degree completion pathways that maximize transfer credits, professional and military training, and other college-level knowledge that has been acquired outside the classroom, NFL Alumni members are already on the path to degree completion.

This partnership will also provide access to Peirce’s career advancement training and returning to learning resources as members and employees plan to grow and expand their careers.

Peirce College is thrilled to partner with the NFL Alumni to offer more individuals a discounted approach to education, which can help to further their careers and their lives.
