Through the new Union Plus Free College Benefit program, TCU/IAM members and their families can receive a college education with no out-of-pocket expenses. Eligible applicants can earn an Associate Degree – online, for free, as long as their financial aid file is complete.
Under an academic partnership with Eastern Gateway Community College, Union Plus offers grants known as “last dollar scholarships” that fill the gap between any federal, state and employer education grants for tuition, fees, and e-books for certain online programs at Eastern Gateway.
Eastern Gateway Community College is a fully accredited, non-profit public institution that is part of the University System of Ohio. Students can enroll in the distance learning program from anywhere in the U.S. The program currently offers seven associate degrees and two certificate programs, and credits can be transferred to a four-year college.
