Feel Stuck and Can't Seem to Make College Work?

Finding the time and money to pay for college is hard when life never slows down. That's why 80% of students who work while in college don’t graduate-- something has to give when you are trying to juggle so much. But now more than ever it's increasingly important to earn a college education. In fact, over 90% of the fastest growing jobs in Texas actually require a college degree. And those with a college education make over twice as much on average in wages compared to high school graduates.

We know the road to graduating from college seems long and hard, but what if  you had help and support along the way?

That's Why We Are Here. 

Since 2012, PelotonU has offered a higher education pathway for hard working college students that blends online education and in-person mentorship. Based in Austin, the program provides college students flexibility to study on their own time, opportunity to avoid debt, and exposure to experiences outside the classroom. Students study at the PelotonU office located in Vessel and receive a scholarship to help pay for college. They graduate with a clear plan to pursue their vocation. Here is our approach:

learn-icon  High-Quality Online Education

Students are matched to a regionally-accredited and competency-based online university based on their long-term education goals. The flexibility of these college degrees allow school to fit alongside students’ other commitments and responsibilities.

work-icon  Weekly In-Person Support

In-person support occurs at PelotonU's office where students spend at least 12 hours a week. Our College Completion Advisors coach students through balancing school, work, and life while also offering additional tutoring.

Apply to PelotonU

Welcome! We are now accepting applications for our October class.

Do you live in Central Texas and want to earn your college degree? Our team is dedicated to making sure you graduate from college on-time with no debt. Once you apply, we’ll set up a phone interview where we explain the program and review answers from your application about your education goals. Following this, we’ll have an in-person interview at the PelotonU office to show you around and determine if we are the best pathway for you to graduate from college.

After successful completion of these two interviews, you’ll be invited to join Provisional Enrollment. During this two month period before you enroll in college, you will be refreshed on fundamental math or writing skills and introduced to techniques to be a successful online learner. Completion of provisional enrollment results in full admission to the college program.

Please complete the application below and we will be in touch!
