Worried about the cost of college? A new benefit for FOP members and their families! Through a partnership between the Fraternal Order of Police and Eastern Gateway Community, FOP members and families can earn a college degree - and you won’t have to pay out of your own pocket for tuition, fees, or books!
The Fraternal Order of Police is partnering with Eastern Gateway Community College to offer FOP members and their families the chance to earn an online degree from a regionally accredited school with no out-of-pocket expense and no need for loans!
A college degree can be your pathway to more opportunity for a better life.
The FOP Free College Benefit covers the cost of tuition, fees and books for participating degree programs at EGCC. This is possible through a combination of grants, employer reimbursements and scholarships. And don’t worry: even if it’s determined that you are not eligible for any outside financial aid, the FOP Free College Benefit has you covered. A scholarship will be applied to your outstanding balance for tuition and fees.
Eastern Gateway Community College is a public college, regionally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, and governed by the Ohio Board of Higher Education as part of the University System of Ohio. Credits earned at EGCC are transferable to most other colleges and universities.
This new benefit for members of the FOP can save you and your family members thousands of dollars. Family is defined as spouses, children, dependents and grandchildren.
