The Towson Learning Network (TLN) works in partnership with local school systems to provide programs that focus on the goals of the school system and the professional development needs of school system employees. TLN meets these needs through a variety of undergraduate and graduate cohort programs offered at reduced tuition rates in convenient locations. Students accepted into one of these cohort programs start and finish an approved sequence of courses together. Only permanent employees in active service with the school system are eligible for cohort programs. These courses are not open to the general public.
Cohort programs may be either school-based or they may be offered in regional locations. Students in school-based cohorts take classes in local public schools. Students in regional location cohort programs take classes in local higher education centers.
