State Farm and Maricopa Community Colleges can be your "Hero of Education" by making high-quality education accessible.

Get assistance paying for college while focusing on your career.

Broadening opportunity through access to education is vital to the development of the workforce of the future. It is also at the heart of the Community College Tuition Program. It's great for those focusing on their State Farm careers and who might not have the extra funds to go back to college.

Through the program, State Farm pays upfront employees' tuition, books, and fees at any of the 10 Maricopa Community Colleges (MCCCD).

Thousands of State Farm employees have already taken advantage of the program. They also have access to onsite and virtual academic advising. The coaching is available to employee participants and provided by the Enrollment Management Outreach team at MCCCD. Student success is their top priority.

Onsite college classes have been offered at State Farm since May of 2017. And last year, a new pilot program launched. It provides new hires the opportunity to earn college credit while in training for their role at State Farm.

Because of these offerings, State Farm was recently awarded the Heroes of Education Award from the Maricopa Community Colleges Foundation.

These programs would not be possible without a shared vision, strategy and passion. State Farm knows how beneficial earning a degree in higher education can be. Our partnership for workforce success with MCCCD helps make high-quality education accessible for everyone in our community.
