There are currently 50 associates from the GEICO Coralville, Iowa, office who are enrolled and taking classes through Upper Iowa University — over 11 percent of the Coralville staff.  Here is what some of them have to say:

“I thought pursing the business courses would be time consuming and difficult, but it was the complete opposite through UIU. My UIU advisor knows which courses GEICO requires us to take…and helps me pick the classes that fit my schedule. Financially, I wouldn’t be able to take classes; but UIU is so flexible that when I work hard, it pays off! I haven’t had to pay a thing out of pocket…”

Meridith Dickey
Service Supervisor

“Taking accelerated classes is exciting! I can watch my credits build up so fast! Having deferred billing makes it so easy! I just print off the bill and GEICO takes care of it!  I can’t wait to finish my degree with UIU!”

Robin Helgins
Retention Unit Supervisor

“I have attempted to return to school on a few different occasions with no real success…UIU’s online program is the only program that works for me…The online program has the right amount of structure while it still allows for the flexibility I need to be successful.”

Ryan Steckly
Business Analyst

“I have taken classes at our local community college, the University of Iowa, and now Upper Iowa University.  I have found that Upper Iowa can really relate to a working student, and classes are geared toward what we do here at GEICO. The professor is very accommodating and put our entire class at ease. Overall, I would give my experience at UIU an A+.”

Bethany Horning
Senior Licensing Analyst

“I enjoyed jumping back into taking college courses with UIU. The advisors were happy to help and quick to respond to questions. The class was onsite, so it was convenient to attend. I also liked earning three credit hours with only eight sessions. That’s a quick way to earn your core business classes.”
