New Higher Education Program for OAPSE Members

OAPSE is pleased to announce a partnership with Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C). OAPSE members, their children, and their grandchildren are able to take advantage of this member ONLY benefit now!

Tri-C will be offering exclusive discounts to OAPSE members and their families, on top of federal and state grants, and merit-based, needs-based, and program-based scholarships. All of this will make Tri-C out of pocket costs for OAPSE members and their families the lowest in the state, and potentially free for some union members.

Tri-C offers more than 1,000 courses, in over 200 career and technical programs, and all courses are eligible for the exclusive OAPSE member discount. Classes are offered online, in-person and in hybrid formats to fit your lifestyle.

In an effort to make tuition as affordable as possible, Tri-C will be offering payment plans for out-of-pocket costs spread out over the entire semester. For OAPSE members with tuition reimbursement in their contract, Tri-C will also be offering a deferred billing option. This deferred billing option would allow your employer to pay their portion of tuition directly to Tri-C upon course completion, allowing OAPSE members more tuition flexibility than ever before.

Spring courses start January 16th at Tri-C and limited space is available, so start the process today!

Tri-C will be holding a virtual meeting for OAPSE members who would like information on the application process, the enrollment process, or additional info on the program. The virtual meeting will take place on December 12th @ 6pm. Email [email protected] to register.

*Eligible family members are limited to children, grandchildren, and dependents of OAPSE members at the moment.
