What will you get out of the Work Program?

Everyone quickly understands the affordability aspect of the Work Program. Each student works 10 hours per week and receives a $5,000 tuition credit. This important piece of the Blackburn experience has made a college education a reality for generations of students.

The Work Program provides so much more!
