For more than 150 years, Davenport University has helped adults take their career further, faster.  Whether your employees, their spouse and dependents are just starting their educational journey or are going back to college, Davenport’s programs will prepare them for today’s fastest growing careers.

Davenport makes it easier than ever to be a nontraditional student in college and achieve the degree that can launch or advance a dream career. It begins with a support team that understands when you’re just beginning or going back to college, you need flexible and convenient course delivery. That’s why they offer classes at 11 locations, including online through the Davenport University Global Campus. And with six start dates a year, students can begin their degree at a time that works best for them.

Davenport offers associate’s, bachelor’s and master’s degrees in business, technology and health programs – areas essential to Michigan’s economy.  Davenport also allows employees to pursue professional training to enhance skills and/or gain industry recognized certifications.

* Average savings are based on full time student with 15 credit hours per semester.

Requirements for eligibility include only newly enrolled Davenport University students or students who have not taken classes with Davenport University within the last 24 months. Also, the age of dependents need to be 29 years or less.
