Working people deserve and value what they've fought for: higher pay, better working conditions, more vacation and sick leave, affordable health care, a voice on the job and countless other advantages.
Education is now one of the most valuable benefits a member can receive, which is why AFSCME is excited to offer an online, low-cost bachelor’s degree completion program for you and your family. It will cost just a fraction of what you’d pay without your union membership and will work with your busy schedule.
AFSCME is partnering with Ohio’s Central State University, a regionally accredited, public land-grant university established in 1887. Members, retirees and their eligible family members can complete an online bachelor’s degree at a huge discount. Rates will vary depending on the level of federal or employer grants a student qualifies for and may even be completely free, but they won’t be more than $190 per credit hour, which is only a third of the national average.*
Classes begin March 9, so apply now and take advantage of the union difference.
*The student's final out of pocket cost is based on CSU’s current tuition and fee schedule. In the event of a future tuition and/or fee rate change, advance notice will be provided.
