In Response to COVID-19 Pandemic: OPEIU Members and Families Can Complete Bachelor's Degree for Free This Summer

In Response to COVID-19 Pandemic: 
OPEIU Members and Families Can Complete Bachelor's Degree for Free This Summer
Enroll by May 18 and OPEIU Will Ensure it Costs You Nothing to Complete Your Degree


Because of the current economic and health uncertainty facing many of our members, your union is making it possible for all students who enroll through the OPEIU Low-Cost Degree Program at Central State University this summer to complete their degree with no out-of-pocket costs.

OPEIU members who enroll in the term beginning May 18 can do so under the same terms as the OPEIU Free College Program. All new and continuing students who are enrolled this summer will be eligible for a Free College last-dollar scholarship, which allows students to complete their degree (through graduation) with no out-of-pocket costs for tuition, fees or e-books. This represents a savings of more than $9,000.

Students can finish their teacher education or business administration bachelor’s degree affordably and safely. You must have earned an associate degree or have at least 60 credits in either field to be eligible. And remember, if you haven't earned your associate degree you can do so as always for NO COST through the OPEIU Free College Program.
