Bloomfield College now offers a 25% tuition discount to Wakefern employees and their dependents. The tuition discount can be applied to both the College’s undergraduate and graduate degree programs.
The Wakefern Food Corporation, founded in 1946 and based in Keasbey, New Jersey, U.S., is the largest Retailers' cooperative group of supermarkets in the United States, and the largest employer in New Jersey.
"Bloomfield College is proud to partner with Wakefern Corp. on this important initiative to promote college access for their employees and their dependents,” said Adam Castro, Vice President for Enrollment Management at Bloomfield College. “The commitment Wakefern Corp. shows toward professional development is to be commended. Their employees and their families will add fresh perspectives and real-world experience to our classrooms. I am excited to see this partnership grow over the next few years.”
Bloomfield College currently offers 40 undergraduate programs and 5 graduate programs.
Many companies encourage employees to continue their education. Enrolling to begin or complete a degree program is an important decision but, too often, finances and hectic work schedules hold people back from pursuing higher education, even if it will earn a promotion or higher salary.
The College will provide Wakefern employees with invaluable resources and a broad range of academic support services via the Center for Innovation in Teaching to Enhance Learning (CITEL). CITEL services include a free Tutoring Center and Writing Center, testing and test preparation, academic support counseling, graduate preparation, a group study hub, and the Office of Adult Education.
Interested Wakefern employees should contact Adam Castro by phone 973-748-9000 ext. 1219 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or Jorge Fernandez, Assistant Director of Admission - Adult, Transfer, and Graduate Programs by phone 973-748-9000 ext. 1222 email@example.com to learn more.
Bloomfield College is one of 12 institutions to partner with Wakefern on this initiative.
