No Cost Bachelor’s Degree Program

With the cost of college and student debt on the rise, the HSTA Membership Services Committee, in partnership with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, Free College, and Central State University created the HSTA Higher Education Benefit.

The Free College program is offered by unions to members and family members in partnership with Central State University and Eastern Gateway Community College.  Designed for working adults, the program is committed to helping students earn an accredited, respected degree with a flexible schedule, without piling on debt. Launched in 2015, the program has helped more than 50,000 students in every state, territory, and the District of Columbia continue on their education journey without paying a penny out of their own pocket.
