College offers free tuition

Carlinville, Ill. — High school valedictorians and salutatorians can now attend college tuition-free at Blackburn College. A unique college with the only student-managed work program in the country, Blackburn is extending the offer of tuition-free education to all high school valedictorians and salutatorians throughout the U.S.

According to Justin Norwood, Director of Admissions, “Current high school seniors who receive the valedictorian or salutatorian awards in their high schools, and meet other admission requirements, will receive up to five year’s free tuition at Blackburn—an estimated $100,000 value.”

“In addition to meeting admission requirements, students will need to have their academic award verified by the student’s high school guidance counselor,” added Norwood. “They will also need to participate in the Blackburn Work Program, reside on campus, and maintain a 3.2 cumulative grade point average.”
