IAM now offers ‘free college benefits’

October 9, 2017 by admin in Labor News From Our Region with 0 Comments

The International Association of Machinists (IAMAW) is proud to announce that we have negotiated a Free College Benefit to make it possible for you and/or your family to earn an associate degree completely online – for FREE.

The free associate’s degree program is available from Eastern Gateway Community College (EGCC) online. Classes start Oct. 16, so get ready and register now.

You won’t pay any out-of-pocket costs for tuition fees or e-books. To be eligible, students must simply apply for federal financial aid and apply any grants or tuition reimbursement to their EGCC bill. The Free College benefit will cover the rest- even if you aren’t eligible for any other aid. EGCC will also work with you to ensure that any previous college work or relevant work or military experience counts toward your degree.

Having a college degree is more important than ever, but tuition costs just keep getting higher and higher. The IAM wants to help our Fighting Machinist families succeed without piling on thousands of dollars in student debt. That’s what makes this benefit of a free college education invaluable to IAM members and their families.

Eastern Gateway Community College is a fully accredited college with degree programs in business management, accounting, criminal justice, associate of arts, and many more. Credits are transferable towards a four-year degree program.

A college degree can be your pathway to new opportunities, greater responsibility, a better job and higher wages. Focused on working adults, this program is also designed to be flexible. Classes are online so they fit into your schedule.

This is a unique opportunity — available only to union members, their families and retirees. Find out more and enroll online at freecollege.goiam.org. For questions, call (888)590-9009 and mention the IAMAW Free College Benefit.

You work hard, and the IAM wants to help. The free college benefit is one more way the IAM helps its members secure the opportunities and the respect they deserve. Take a look at this exciting new program and take advantage today to help grow your career.
