Saylor Academy is pleased to announce a college credit transfer partnership with Urban College of Boston. The Urban College of Boston (UCB) is an independent, co-educational two-year institution located in the heart of downtown Boston. UCB is chartered by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to offer Associate of Arts degrees in Early Childhood Education, Human Services Administration and General Studies.
“The alignment of missions between Saylor and UBC is a natural fit,” said Jeff Davidson, Director of Strategic Relationships for Saylor Academy. “UBC serves an underserved community and through this partnership furthers its mission by enabling students to earn tuition-free college credit on their own schedules via the Saylor platform.”
As noted in its mission statement, “Urban College of Boston exists to provide opportunity to every student seeking a college degree or professional advancement. The College supports students as they overcome economic, social, and language barriers to achieve academic, personal or professional aspirations.” We are proud to partner with UBC to help them do just that.
Urban College of Boston is accredited by the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc, a recognized accreditor of the U.S. Department of Education.
