New!Grant Funding, Academic & Career Support Just for PA Residents Completing a Degree or Certificate

If you have started a college degree or certificate that you were unable to complete, you may be eligible for a special program at Seton Hill University that will get your education moving forward. This "near completer" program is a partnership with the Westmoreland-Fayette Workforce Investment Board and is made possible through a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry.

“Quite often, financial burdens keep students from finishing their education, and, through this grant program, we will be able to help them complete their degree with significant financial support and, in many cases, tuition-free. They will also gain the flexibility of an online program, which will allow them to continue working while completing classes."

- Seton Hill University President Mary Finger
