U.S. Department of Education Under Secretary, Ted Mitchell, announced today that Marylhurst University and Epicodus were selected for a unique national project called – Educational Quality Through Innovative Partnerships (EQUIP). EQUIP will allow students to take Epicodus's courses through Marylhurst and access federal financial aid, as well as receive transferrable credit for their coursework. A core part of Epicodus's mission is to serve people who, by birth or circumstance, don't have easy access to learning the skills they need to get great jobs in fields like software development. Since our beginning we've focused on keeping our classes affordable and providing financing for students without the means to pay, and our partnership with Marylhurst under the EQUIP program will help us reach more low-income students who can benefit from our services.
Stay tuned for more info about this program!
