If you and your family are mostly hunkered down due to the coronavirus, you may want to consider taking advantage of an amazing opportunity from Union Plus. A program Union Plus is currently offering can be life-changing for those who have a desire to complete their college education (bachelor’s degree) online at little or no cost.
Union members (in good standing) and their family members can choose to participate in the Union Plus Bachelor’s Degree Completion Program. Students who enroll for the 2020-21 academic year can complete their entire degree online with no out of pocket cost for tuition, fees, or e-books.
If you have completed your bachelor’s degree, there may be someone in your family who has not. The free college benefit is open to full dues-paying members in good standing and their families or retiree members. Families are children (or stepchildren), grandchildren (or step-grandchildren), spouses, domestic partners, financial dependents, siblings, and parents, including in-laws. “In partnership with Central State University, a respected and accredited institution, this flexible, 100% online program gives you the ability to study on your own schedule,” according to Union Plus. “In addition, your courses are transferable to other schools.”
Currently, the program is offering three areas of study: teacher education, business administration, and criminal justice. Hopefully, more areas of study will be offered at a later date. According to the program, students must have an associate degree or 60 or more credits in the area of study to enroll. Students not meeting this threshold can enroll in the free associate degree program. Students needing prerequisite classes can enroll in programs through the free college programs with Eastern Gateway Community College.
The program is now enrolling for fall classes. Get started by calling 888-897-9671 or enrolling online at www.unionplus.org.
