Free College Member Only Benefit Expanded!




The SEIU Member Benefit program offering free tuition at Eastern Gateway Community College (EGCC) has been expanded!  Now, in addition to an Associate’s degree or certificate from EGCC, you can now complete your Bachelor’s Degree from Central State University—for free! This benefit is open to dues-paying SEIU members and their families.

Federal, state, and employer grants don’t always cover the full cost of earning a degree online. SEIU is proud to partner with Eastern Gateway Community College and Central State University to help eligible students fill the financial gap. The SEIU Free College Benefit covers the difference between any federal, state, or employer education grants you receive and the cost of tuition, fees, and e-books.

  • Accounting
  • Business Management (with certificates in Advertising, Cyber Security, Data Science, Digital and Social Media, Entrepreneurship, Finance, General Management, Healthcare Management, Hospitality, Human Resources, Information Systems, Labor Studies, or Programming and Development)
