Benedictine University – “Illinois Back to Work” Program

Yesterday, Seton Hall University made a splash offering discounts to attend their school if you meet certain academic criteria.  It is significant, too.  Discounts could be 2/3 the cost of tuition.  http://www.nytimes.com/2011/09/29/nyregion/seton-hall-university-to-offer-steep-tuition-discounts.html

Seton Hall is not alone with their special offers.  Many of America’s greatest private universities, historically, have reduced tuition for locals and gifted students.

Northwestern University currently offers discounts for freshman who graduate from high schools in Evanston and Chicago under their “Good Neighbor, Great University” Program.  http://www.northwestern.edu/newscenter/stories/2010/08/financial-aid-local-high-school-graduates.html

Benedictine University’s “Illinois Back to Work” Program is unique.  “…“Illinois Back to Work” program for qualified individuals who have been unemployed for at least 18 months. Applications are currently being accepted for select tuition-covered adult format undergraduate programs beginning fall 2011. Benedictine’s “Illinois Back to Work” program will cover any remaining tuition and after all eligible state and federal student aid is applied.” http://www.ben.edu/news/2011/benedictine-is-putting-illinois-back-to-work-wit.cfm
