The University of Massachusetts Boston will now provide academic guidance services to students as part of a $7.3 million agreement with Tiger Academic Partners.
Under the agreement, students will be able to view information about specific courses, instructors and the major they have enrolled in.
The university will be offering the services through its online portal and the Tiger Academic website.
The service will be available to students starting on January 15.
The agreement comes a month after the university signed a $6.9 million agreement to sell Tiger’s digital learning platform to a group of investors.
The company has been criticized by many students, alumni and faculty over its treatment of them and other minority students, many of whom are underrepresented.
The deal was announced on April 8, the same day the university launched a new campus website and redesigned the online application to make it easier to navigate the college.
“We have reached an agreement with TAP to create an online education platform that will allow students, faculty and staff to access all the educational content available at the University of Boston, including Tiger’s courses, courses, faculty, research and internship content, and the student resources and other resources available to all students,” University President Richard Levin said in a statement.
In June, the university announced that it would be opening up the Tiger platform to the public for free for five years starting in 2019. “
In the near future, we will be announcing more details about our new Tiger academic services platform and will be partnering with our alumni and student organizations in developing new ways for our alumni to access their education and their passion.”
