New this year, CSEA is partnering with Central State University to offer classified employees and their family members bachelor’s degrees at an extremely reduced cost. CSEA members in good standing (including retirees), their children, grandchildren, spouses or domestic partners are all eligible to receive the CSEA Student Success Grant that keeps the cost either free or low. For those who have not yet completed an Associate degree, or have less than 60 transfer credits, they can complete those requirements through the CSEA Free College program and then transfer to Central State University to complete their Bachelor’s degree.
Family members do NOT need to be financial dependents or living with the member to be eligible. To be eligible, interested students must apply for federal financial aid and some or all of the grants to pay the tuition, e-books, and fees. For CSEA members and their families, the most they will pay in annual out-of-pocket costs is $4,500, and for many, it will be significantly less, if not zero.
