One more day to apply for Free College! Open to UFCW members, retirees, and their families

Registration for the next semester of the UFCW’s Free College Benefit closes tomorrow, so there’s still time to make your dreams of going back to school a reality. While going to college for free might seem too good to be true, the benefit is just one of the many perks of UFCW membership that can help you save money and build a better future for yourself and your loved ones.

If you are a UFCW member, retired UFCW member, or a family member and one of your New Year’s resolutions was to go back to school and get your degree, make sure you don’t miss the deadline!

This amazing benefit  makes it possible for UFCW members and their families to earn an Associate Degree online through Eastern Gateway Community College (EGCC) with no out-of-pocket costs or need for loans. Classes at EGCC are scheduled to start on January 16th.

The UFCW’s Free College Benefit is designed to help UFCW members and their families balance work and home life. You can attend school part-time or full-time – whichever fits your schedule. All you need to get started is a high school degree or GED, and there are no entrance exams to worry about. Available programs at EGCC include Business Management, Accounting, Paralegal, and Early Childhood Education.

This benefit is available exclusively to UFCW members, retired members, and family members, including children, spouses, grandchildren, domestic partners, and dependents. You can learn more information about this amazing benefit here
