Free College means you can earn your degree online from Eastern Gateway Community College—a public, accredited institution that is part of the University System of Ohio, so your credits will be transferable. The College also gives credit for prior learning! Peace Officers’ training counts for almost half of EGCC’s Criminal Justice degree. 

And this benefit extends to your parents and your siblings, as well as to your spouse or domestic partner, children, grandchildren (no matter where they live!) and dependents.
