John Brown University, City of Siloam Springs Partner to Offer Tuition Discount

John Brown University and the City of Siloam Springs have partnered to offer a 10 percent tuition discount to eligible city employees for JBU’s graduate and online undergraduate programs. City employees must be full time or permanent part time in order to qualify for the discount.

Through the partnership, eligible city employees can finish bachelor’s degrees in business administration, liberal arts, organizational leadership, psychology and the RN to BSN degree through the JBU online undergraduate program or earn master’s degrees in business, healthcare administration, cybersecurity, outdoor program management, leadership, and design thinking and innovation through JBU’s Graduate School. 

All of the degrees offered through the partnership can be completed either exclusively online or through a combination of online and evening classes at the JBU Rogers Center

“JBU’s main campus since its founding has called Siloam Springs home. As such, we’ve been able to create a long history of partnerships with the city that have benefitted the local community,” said Dr. Ed Ericson, JBU’s vice president for academic affairs. “We’re excited to provide opportunities that expand JBU’s mission to reach city employees as they further their educational pursuits and career goals.”

JBU offers a tuition discount to employees through business partnerships at many organizations across Northwest Arkansas, including Mercy Hospital Northwest Arkansas, J.B. Hunt, Sam’s Club and Walmart. If your business is interested in a partnership agreement, please contact Dr. Stacey Duke, dean of online undergraduate programs and strategic initiatives, at for more information.
