Central Michigan University to Offer Discounted Tuition to Michigan Municipal League

Discount available to League members and employees

ANN ARBOR, Michigan – College tuition is now more affordable for Michigan Municipal League members and employees, thanks to a new agreement between Central Michigan University and the League. The agreement gives League members and employees, their spouses and qualified dependents discounted access to online programs and classes taken at CMU's satellite locations. ​

The CMU Global Campus agreement provides League members and employees and their families a 15 percent tuition discount for certificate, bachelor's and master's degree programs for qualified individuals. More than 30 academic programs are available through the Michigan Municipal League Discount agreement, with an emphasis on programs that focus on mission-critical occupations for local governments and the League. The agreement also extends to League staff and their families.

"This agreement with CMU will provide valuable assistance to our members and employees as they pursue higher education," said Dan Gilmartin, CEO and executive director of the Michigan Municipal League. "It will also help enhance the professionalism of the appointed and elected officials and staff that are guiding the growth and development of Michigan’s municipalities.”

CMU students can earn credit for work and life experiences and have access to programs that accelerate bachelor's and master's degree attainment.​

Pete Ross, CMU vice provost of academic development, said the agreement is in line with the university’s strategic goals to graduate leaders, develop community partnerships and improve the economy. “CMU is committed to support Michigan’s current and future leadership. We are proud to partner with the League as its members and employees work to improve communities around the state.”

CMU offers academic programs in condensed eight-week formats. A leader in off-campus education since 1972, Central has nearly 40 locations in the United States and Canada, including at 20 military bases. 

​CMU, founded in 1892, is accredited by the ​Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. It is among just 5 percent of U.S. universities in the highest two Carnegie research classifications. Its main campus is located in Mount Pleasant, Michigan, and enrolls more than 20,000 students; federal employee discounts do not apply in Mount Pleasant. CMU's Global Campus serves 7,000 students.
