Working Together: EDVANCE and EBS Union College

The UFCW International Union has partnered with EBS Union College Benefit and EDVANCE to help match you to the right program and school and assist you with the admissions process.

Prospective students can work directly with school administrators to apply for additional federal financial assistance, which could cover their remaining tuition costs.

The partners will also help you narrow down the school with the best fit for you, evaluate any existing transcripts to determine if earned credits can be applied to your new degree, and offer other support services as you move forward with your education!
