Upper Iowa University is pleased to partner with Bright Horizons EdAssist Solutions to enhance employee performance through UIU educational opportunities. Our programs allow for both part-time and full-time employees to continue their educational endeavors through our flexible course options. Bright Horizons EdAssist Solutions participants are eligible to receive a tuition grant for any course taken though the UIU online program or at a UIU educational center in the United States. This grant applies to spouses and dependent children up to age 26. The CAP program currently offers a $125 tuition grant to participants, which is based on total Bright Horizons EdAssist Solutions participation each year.

Classes at UIU start six times a year, so you never need to wait long to get started. We offer 8-week sessions and one accelerated 6-week summer session each year. Shorter sessions mean students generally take fewer classes at any given time.

Benefits Available to Bright Horizons EdAssist Solutions Client Participants:

  • Free Online Application
  • Delayed Payment Contract – The only out-of-pocket cost your employees have is textbooks, enabling employees to start their educational requirements without a financial burden.
  • Generous Credit Transfer – At UIU, students can transfer up to 78 credits from an accredited two-year college or up to 90 credits from a four-year institution toward a bachelor’s program and up to 12 transfer credits toward a master’s degree. We also accept Charter Property Casualty Underwriter (CPCU) credits that can shorten the time to obtaining a bachelor’s or master’s degree. We are happy to evaluate credit from any other insurance designation. This allows you to receive credit for the work you have already completed.
  • Tuition Grant – We offer employees, spouses, and their children under the age of 26 a $125 grant per course for all undergraduate and graduate courses. This provides the employee with the ability to maximize their tuition reimbursement.
  • One-on-One Advising – Each student is assigned a highly qualified advisor who works closely with them on their individual educational goals from enrollment to completion of their coursework. Advisors are easily accessible via phone and email.
  • Multiple Methods of Delivery – In addition to our robust online platform, UIU offers courses at our main residential campus in Fayette, Iowa; center locations nationally and internationally; and through the self-paced degree program.
  • Many Major and Program Offerings – UIU offers certificates, associate, bachelor and master degrees. UIU faculty are experts in their fields. They combine extensive experience and knowledge with a comfortable and supportive learning environment to foster student success with a university wide 13:1 student-to-faculty ratio.
  • Student Support Services – UIU offers a wide range of support resources, including free online library services, free online tutoring, UIU bookstore, career services, disability services, military and veteran services, and financial aid for degree-seeking students.
