Associate Degree Benefits

Saturday, October 15th, 2011

An associate degree comes with several benefits:

  • Earn more money: According to the U.S. Census Bureau in 2005, the median lifetime earnings for individuals with associate degrees are 28 percent higher than median lifetime earnings for high school graduates.
  • Prepare for a higher degree: Many associate degree programs correspond directly to larger university programs and fulfill about half the credit requirements of a bachelor’s degree. Many four-year colleges or universities prefer to accept a candidate with an associate degree instead of one with only some college credit, since degree completion shows that the student can follow through.
  • Complete a bachelor’s degree at Grace: Starting your education at The Henry and Frances Weber School at Grace College allows you to transition seamlessly to Grace College in Winona Lake, Indiana. As long as you maintain at least a 2.0 GPA, you will be automatically eligible to finish your bachelor’s degree on the Grace Campus.

 

Grace College Opens Two-Year Henry and Frances Weber School: Locations in Fort Wayne and Indianapolis

Friday, October 14th, 2011

Grace College is moving forward to bring post-secondary education within reach of a larger population. Beginning August 2011, The Henry and Frances Weber School at Grace College will deliver a two-year associate of arts degree in general studies in two locations: Fort Wayne and Indianapolis. Tuition rates for the new program are $3900 per semester.

Dr. Ronald Manahan, president of Grace College, remarked, “To our knowledge this is the only such Christian two-year program available today. This school will offer a cost-effective associate degree to students in urban areas who want a Christian education, and we ultimately look forward to offering this program in a variety of cities.”

Each of the two years will be divided into fall, spring, and summer semesters, each with two eight-week sessions. The program is designed so that students completing the two-year associate degree can continue to the Winona Lake campus or transfer to another college to complete baccalaureate degrees.

Dr. John Teevan has been appointed Executive Director of The Weber School. Teevan came to Grace in 2006 to lead the Prison Extension, which grew to 350 students under his leadership. For more than thirty years before coming to Grace, he was a pastor in Grace Brethren Churches in Ashland, Ohio and Winona Lake, Ind.

“Henry and Frances Weber have served Grace College in a variety of capacities for nearly two decades,” said Teevan. “It’s an honor for our school to be able to give back to them when they have given so richly to us.”

Henry Weber noted that Christian higher education needed “to develop alumni who make their way in the world as successful Christian members of society, no matter what their vocation.” Through The Weber School, Grace plans to help fulfill this charge by lowering the upfront cost of the first two years of college and minimizing barriers to education that many people face.

Grace College is an evangelical Christian community of higher education which applies Biblical values in strengthening character, sharpening competence, and preparing for service. The academic, residential, athletic, and social aspects of the college are designed to encourage intellectual and spiritual growth in a supportive campus community. The 180-acre campus is located in the historic resort town of Winona Lake, near Warsaw, Ind. It has historically been among the top schools of its size and listed in U.S. News & World Report as one of America’s Best Colleges. The Princeton Review has regularly awarded it the title of a “Best Midwestern College.”

Grace College Opens Location in Fort Wayne

Monday, August 8th, 2011

Grace College held a big ribbon-cutting Friday, August 5, at a Fort Wayne campus now known as “The Summit.”

Earlier this week, the owners of the former Taylor University campus, Ambassador Enterprises, announced the name change.

The Henry and Frances Weber School at Grace College, will offer a two-year associate of arts degree in general studies at Fort Wayne.

Tuition is $3,900 dollars per semester.

Ambassador officials said they want to use the campus for collaborative educational opportunities. Grace College leaders said that’s what brought them here.

“We especially, as a campus, believe strongly in the value of collaborations and partnerships. We have a number of them on our home campus and it made sense for us then to think about that option when we came to Fort Wayne,” said Dr. Ron Manahan, President of Grace College.
