With the SEIU Free College Benefit, you and your family members can earn an associate degree online from a public, accredited community college – with no out-of-pocket costs to you. Family is defined as spouses, children, stepchildren, children-in-law, parents, siblings, dependents and grandchildren and domestic partners. Potential student’s membership will be verified by union. This can save you thousands of dollars. And the process is simple. First launched with AFSCME in 2015, thousands of students have already taken advantage of millions of dollars in scholarships.
