FREE College Benefit for Members and Their Families

 

Imagine What You Can Achieve with the

FREE COLLEGE BENEFIT

The IAMAW Free College Benefit makes it possible for you and your family members to earn an associate degree completely online – for FREE.

 

Why Get Your Degree?

A Degree Makes A Difference

Balance

Go back to school while you continue to work. If you’re unsure or get stuck, you’ll have online access to tutoring services, your enrollment advisor and your highly-qualified instructors.

Flexibility

Online classes let you work on your own time and at your own pace during the semester.

Credibility

Graduate from a respected, accredited academic institution.

Assurance

Eastern Gateway is regionally accredited, so credits are transferable. We encourage students to talk to their advisor about the process.

Eastern Gateway Community College is regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, so credits you earn are transferable. Over half of all college students choose community college to begin their higher education and they provide students with a solid foundation to continue their education.

You won’t pay any out-of-pocket costs for tuition fees or e-books. To be eligible, students must simply apply for federal financial aid and apply any grants or tuition reimbursement to their EGCC bill. The Free College benefit will cover the rest- even if you aren’t eligible for any other aid!

EGCC will work with you to ensure that any previous college work or relevant work or military experience counts toward your degree.

Spring (2) Registration Deadline is March 16th, 2018

HERE ARE THE NEXT STEPS

With the IAMAW Free College Benefit, you and your family members can earn an associate degree online from a public, accredited community college – with no out-of-pocket costs to you. This can save you thousands of dollars. And the process is simple.
