McDonald’s Restaurants of Indiana and Ivy Tech Community College will announce Thursday an alliance to make college more affordable and accessible for Hoosiers.
Through the McDonald’s Archways to Opportunity education program, restaurant employees can earn college credit from Ivy Tech for on-the-job training received at the restaurant.
Employees who work a minimum of 90 days at 15 hours per week will be eligible for tuition assistance up to $2,500 per year as a crewmember and up to $3,000 as a manager.
This program will help students to earn a degree faster.
McDonald’s says the program will be available at more than 300 McDonald’s locations and 18 Ivy Tech campuses across the state.
