Today, college affordability is on everyone’s mind. In fact, studies show that only half of Americans who begin college will be able to finish – largely due to financial, work and life barriers. However, APA and MEA can provide you, and your family, with a new educational opportunity. You and your family can now take classes at Eastern Gateway Community College (EGCC) for free! Yes, “Free College!”
We have partnered with Ohio’s Eastern Gateway Community College to offer our members a life changing benefit. As a member of the APA, you and members of your family will be able to obtain an Associate’s degree online, with ZERO out of pocket costs in the following different areas of study:
- Business Management with concentrations in Human Resources, Healthcare Management, Marketing and Finance;
- Patient Home Navigator Certificate;
- Associate of Arts;
- Criminal Justice;
- Early Childhood Education;
- Or Individualized Study.
Regardless of location, EGCC is one of the fastest growing community colleges in the country and is regionally accredited and regulated by the Ohio Department of Education. Credits earned at EGCC can be transferred to other institutions across the country and the staff at the college is committed to helping students determine the right course of study that will help them continue their work at a college closer to their home.
This benefit works as a “last-dollar scholarship”, or grant, through Eastern Gateway Community College that is intended to fill the gap between any federal, state or employer education grants you receive and the cost of tuition, fees and e-books for certain online degree programs at Eastern Gateway Community College. You must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and any grant award must be applied to the tuition, fees and e-book charges at EGCC.
Remember that “Free College” is available to you as an APA member, as well as your spouse, domestic partner, children, grandchildren and other financial dependents. So, even if you are not looking to take a class, talk to your family about this exciting program! You can register for Spring 2 Session until March 16, 2018.
