Office of Marketing + Communications

WILLIAMSTOWN, Ky. – It just became cheaper to attend Northern Kentucky University’s Grant County Center.

Beginning in August, the campus will offer a $25 discount per credit hour to students who are enrolled in one or more courses. The one-year pilot program could save students between $75 and $100 per course.

“We are very excited to expand access to the Grant County Center,” said Correy Eimer, Associate Director of the Grant County Center. “We hope more students decide to take advantage of the courses we offer, and we want to support them as much as possible. Although college is certainly expensive, we hope students think of it as an investment in their futures that will pay dividends for years to come.”

The discount applies to students enrolled at Grant County Center for the 2015-2016 academic year. The discount does not apply to high school students enrolled in the School-Based Scholars Program. 

The Grant County Center is dedicated to increasing access to education for residents of Grant, Gallatin, Owen and Pendleton counties and the surrounding areas. NKU has offered select courses at the Williamstown location since 1998. The facility serves students of all ages and offers flexible PACE (Program for Adult-Centered Education) courses for working adults.

“The Grant County Center is a wonderful place to begin your college career,” said Jacqalynn Ammer Riley, chair of the NKU Grant County Center Advisory Council. “It’s a convenient option for students of all ages who want the benefits of NKU right in their own backyards.”
