St. Scholastica's Meaningful Work Award

Providing a 10% tuition discount for employees of participating partners

St. Scholastica is dedicated to providing our students with the intellectual and moral preparation for responsible living and meaningful work. Many organizations and businesses provide opportunities for such work and are tightly aligned with our own mission. In an effort to support both the organization and its employees, we’ve developed the Meaningful Work Award.

Program details

The Meaningful Work Award is available to any employee of an organization partnered with St. Scholastica and covers undergraduate and graduate programs at the College's extended campus locations and through its online campus.

Programs that generally do not qualify include: Undergraduate and graduate day programs offered at the College's Duluth campus, the online Post-Graduate DNP, BS to DNP, and the Post-Baccalaureate Nursing program.

Apply to CSS

The College of St. Scholastica has established Meaningful Work Award (MWA) tuition discounts for employees of selected business partners.  If your employer is listed, simply note your place of employment and Human Resources contact information on your college application to claim your discount.

The award will remain in effect as long as you are employed by a partner organization. All recipients of this award must be new students who meet admissions requirements for acceptance into a qualifying program.

While we make every effort to ask prospective students if their employer is a MWA partner, it is ultimately the applicant's responsibility to notify us that they may be eligible for this tuition discount. Discounts will not be applied retroactively after students begin their program.

To receive the Meaningful Work Award tuition discount, please indicate the name of your employer or organization on your application.
