Buy a Glass of Lemonade: Support Continuing Education’s Youth Entrepreneur Program

6921417837_2c6b6e6312_nOn Friday, July 24, children involved in Continuing Education’s Youth Entrepreneur Program “Y.E.P Detroit!” will be selling delicious lemonade on campus from 12 pm to 2 pm outside the front entrance of the Madame Cadillac Building. Also, they will be visiting offices on campus to promote the sale. Please come out and support us and feel free to invite family and friends.

                       The proceeds of the sale will be donated to a local Children’s Charity!!

For the past two weeks children in the program have been discussing with their instructor Ms Sherika Cheney, Entrepreneurship, money management, and marketing. This includes the planning process and execution of a product, pricing, promotion and distribution of ideas, goods and services to crate changes that satisfy individual and organizational objectives.

Children also learn how to write a business plan, explore concepts of business, and gain value and experience for the day students go into business or work in a business.

We look forward to your support on Friday, July 24!

Lemonade and water will be sold outside the Front Entrance of the Madame Cadillac Building.

We’re Easing the Financial Burden for Our Students

Over the last few years, students have continued to see a steady rise in the cost of earning a college degree. This is something that concerns Marygrove College, and we’ve decided to do something about it.

To ensure that Marygrove College remains affordable, we’ve cut tuition by 16.5 percent for part-time students. This means that, beginning this fall, part-time students can expect to pay $590 per credit hour—that’s a $117 reduction per credit hour.

But that’s not all. For full-time students who take more than 18 hours in a semester, the cost for the additional credit hours above 18 has been cut even further to $500 per credit. We’ve also reduced the number of credit hours students are required to earn in order to graduate from 128 to 120. This will save all Marygrove students both time and money!

If you are a traditional, full-time student, you should also know that we are continuing to offer generous financial aid packages that, if you qualify, may cover between 90 and 100 percent of your tuition—that’s money that you don’t have to pay back!

At Marygrove, we’re committed to working with every student to ensure that finances do not stand in the way of your education.
