Columbus, OH —

Franklin University, a leading educator of working adults, is pleased to announce its Educational Partnership with the Advanced Technical Intelligence Center for Human Capital Development (ATIC) to include a tuition discount for all ATIC faculty, staff, students, and alumni who enroll in a Franklin degree program.  In addition, graduates of ATIC’s Analyst Boot Camp (ABC) program are eligible to receive transfer credits at Franklin University.

Formalization of this partnership provides employees and graduates of ATIC with the benefit of reduced tuition rates for both undergraduate and graduate programs at Franklin as well as the acceptance of 12 credits of undergraduate credit and 8 credits of graduate credit for a number of Franklin’s undergraduate and Master of Public Administration programs. 

The primary mission of ATIC is to educate and train a workforce of appropriately cleared government and contractor personnel capable of generating actionable information from technical intelligence systems.  By partnering with Franklin, ATIC employees and graduates can earn a bachelor's or master's degree which increases their value to national, state, and local agencies, as well as contractors, supporting critical missions throughout the intelligence community.
