Update on Free College Program
The Free College program has been suspended. Our higher education partners are working to resolve regulatory compliance issues related to the program. In the meantime, we urge prospective students to find out if they are eligible for Pell Grants, which can substantially defray or even pay for their educational expenses. This federal program provides eligible students with up to $6,895 a year in education assistance, depending on various factors such as income, cost of attendance and full- or part-time student status. The grants are portable and can be used at almost any accredited college or university. To find out if you are eligible, you will need to complete an application form and the college’s financial office will calculate your eligibility before you enroll. Click on this link to learn more.
