Peirce Collee recently participated in JetBlue's annual graduation ceremony to honor JetBlue Scholars who completed their bachelor’s degrees at Peirce.

The JetBlue Scholars program is an innovative model that beyond traditional tuition reimbursement programs. The program provides greater access and a lower-cost path to higher education and creates flexibility that allows JetBlue crewmembers to learn at their own pace and use high-quality alternative college credit options, including new technology-based learning platforms.


Dr. Rita Toliver-Roberts, vice president, Academic Affairs and Provost, was one of the featured speakers at JetBlue’s 2024 graduation ceremony, which was held in January in Orlando, Fla. She was joined by Dr. Stephanie Gibbs-Emenaka, dean of Admissions and Corporate Partnerships, and Devon Vargason, academic advisor, to meet with this year’s graduates and share information about the College’s master’s degree and graduate certificate programs with JetBlue crewmembers and their families.

The innovative partnership between Peirce and JetBlue was launched in 2021 and allows crewmembers to complete their degree as efficiently and affordably as possible. It leverages low-cost course providers like to help students save money by applying credits for those courses aligned directly with their Peirce degree programs.

So far, more than 60 JetBlue Scholars participants have enrolled at Peirce and 24 have already graduated with their bachelor’s degrees.
