Free College for Union Members: Informational Sessions
July 20 - July 22
Members with SEIU District 1199 now have more options for free college programs. Members and their eligible family members can utilize programs with Eastern Gateway Community College and Central State University, which are both a part of the State of Ohio’s higher education system. There’s no cost for tuition, fees, or e-books. These programs are available anywhere and are regionally accredited
Once a student has 60 credit hours, they can transfer to Central State University to earn a bachelor’s degree in the degree programs listed. This benefit is open to members in West Virginia, Kentucky, and Ohio.
There will be three informational sessions over Zoom for members with SEIU District 1199 in coordination with Eastern Gateway Community College. We have heard from many members that this program may be especially beneficial now.
Though we can’t ensure that you will be able to register in time, if you are not a member of SEIU District 1199, you can sign a membership card online. Eastern Gateway Community College has offered guidance that furloughed or laid off union members and their families are also eligible.
