URS Federal Services Inc. Establishes New Educational Alliance with UMUC
New agreement provides URS employees access to UMUC’s diverse programs
Adelphi, MD (January 9, 2013)—UMUC announced today that it has signed an agreement with URS Federal Services Inc.—a division of URS Corporation based in Germantown, Md.—to provide employees and their families access to UMUC degree and certificate* programs.
"For 65 years, UMUC has focused on serving adult students by providing workforce—relevant coursework via modes of delivery that fit their busy lives," said UMUC Acting Provost Marie Cini. "We are pleased and proud to continue that tradition through this agreement with URS Federal Services Inc."
Under the agreement, URS Federal Services' employees, spouses and dependents can take individual courses or enroll in any of UMUC’s 95 academic programs, most of which are available fully online. Students enrolling in UMUC's Undergraduate School may transfer credits and/or be awarded credit for prior learning, if eligible under UMUC's standard policies and procedures. Program participants who don't already qualify for UMUC's in-state tuition rates may also be eligible for a significant discount on out-of-state rates.
"URS Federal Services is extremely pleased to participate in the education alliance with UMUC and proud to have the opportunity to support our employees and their family members through this program," said Randall A. Wotring, president of federal services for URS.
