Planning on making use of UFCW’s Free College benefit or have someone in your family who is? Don’t forget, we are currently accepting applications for the upcoming semester of the UFCW’s free college benefit until Friday, May 25, so hurry and get those applications in!
The UFCW Free College Benefit ensures that UFCW members and their families do not have to pay out of pocket for any tuition, fees or e-books at Eastern Gateway Community College—resulting in cost savings of thousands of dollars!
“I love the fact that the union offers education programs like Free College and the Foreign Language Program. I was worried it was going to be complicated, but it was so easy to sign up for Free College. I’ll have 30 years at the plant come January and I’m in the paralegal program now. I tell everybody I can ‘just go for it.’”
– Pam Collins, UFCW Local 1473 member
The Free College Benefit covers any amount for tuition, fees or books that is not covered by federal or employer education grants.
Children (or stepchildren), grandchildren (or step-grandchildren), spouses, domestic partners, and financial dependents of UFCW members are eligible for the UFCW Free College Benefit. Retired UFCW members are also eligible.
