CARLINVILLE — Blackburn College is initiating a new program to welcome transfer students with free tuition.
Students can now “test-drive” the college with free tuition their first semester to see how the school provides a unique educational setting.
“We saw this as an opportunity to let transfer students experience the exceptional academic programs Blackburn College provides and how the college is focused on accessible and affordable education,” Blackburn College President John Comerford said.
“It is a great way for transfer students to find out, first-hand, how they like the college—without paying any tuition for the fall semester,” he continued.
Students must be from Illinois, meet certain requirements — including participating in the college’s work program — and meet usual admission requirements for transfer students.
