Groupon Offers College Tuition at a 60 Percent Discount

I love Groupon! It always surprises me how many awesome deals I can get on there. I’ve gotten deals on spa days, clothing stores, and many other things, but I never would have thought I would see a college education as the daily deal. However, that is exactly what is happening at National Louis University.

National Louis University is the first school in the USA to offer a discount on tuition via Groupon.

So, what was he to do? Ahmed did something that seems pretty normal to us, but is not nearly as common in Asia: he enrolled in an online university.
