It was very important to me to set an example for my three children. And earning my degree was a source of personal satisfaction.

As a part-time student and working mother of three, Marisela took advantage of flexible online learning and employer reimbursement to earn her bachelor’s from SCPS. She enrolled in BIS part-time, after earning her associate’s at her local community college, and graduated with her BA, even though she moved across the country during her program. She now works as an accounting manager for Tri-Dim, who sponsored her SCPS studies.
