Welcome Snap-On Employees

As a Snap-On employee, you qualify for a 10 percent tuition discount on all Columbia College courses. And since our tuition is already about half the national average for private schools, you could save thousands of dollars on your accredited associate, bachelor’s or master’s degree.

Nearly 20,000 students take classes at Columbia College each year at our locations across the nation and online.

Here's how we can help you get the most from your education:

  • Flexible evening classes at locations nationwide and online courses (anytime, anywhere) allow you to fit your classes around your Snap-On career.
  • Six class sessions start each year, allowing you to complete your degree quickly. Each class lasts eight weeks. You could earn an associate degree in 20 months, a bachelor’s in 3.5 years, and a master’s degree in just 12 months! Or, study at a pace that works for you.
  • We accept more transfer credit than many schools, which may allow you to graduate even sooner if you have attended an accredited college in the past.
  • Take advantage of the articulation agreements with our community college partners and save even more time and money.
  • All classes are taught by experienced instructors with either master’s or doctoral degrees.
  • Columbia College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission so you can be confident that your degree will be respected in the workplace.
  • Our degree programs teach skills that can be applied in your career from day one.
