US based Indiana Wesleyan University and ATP Flight School Announce Partnership

26th Dec 2022

Indiana Wesleyan University-National & Global has partnered with ATP Flight School, the largest flight training company in the United States, to create streamlined degree pathways for pilots who complete their FAA Certificate through ATP. Alumni who enroll at IWU can count their flight training experience as degree credit and receive a ten percent tuition discount on select programs.

“We provide a generous pathway for ATP Flight School graduates by granting 30 credits toward an undergraduate degree,” says Dr. Joe Childs, director of aviation programs at IWU. “The earned FAA Certificates and ratings are articulated as credit by assessment.”

IWU and ATP are addressing the impending pilot shortage by meeting the need for flexible, accessible degree programs for pilots, whose busy and variable work schedules often make obtaining a degree difficult. IWU’s programs are offered 100% online in a five- or six-week asynchronous format, allowing pilots to complete degree requirements on their time.

Through the partnership, ATP alumni can receive a ten percent discount on the associate-level professional pilot degree, bachelor of science in aviation management, master of science in management or master of business administration.

“ATP is proud to partner with IWU and bring this degree pathway to aspiring pilots,” says Michael Arnold, director of marketing at ATP Flight School. “Students at ATP have the competitive edge of training and becoming an airline pilot on the fastest timeline possible, and now in partnership with IWU, they’ll have a flexible solution for earning a degree and further broadening their career opportunities.”

“Earning or upgrading a degree from IWU enables ATP Flight School graduates to enhance their leadership and critical thinking skills, essential for safe operations,” says Dr. Childs.
