Spring Hill College has launched a revolutionary initiative that is set to transform the face of higher education. The college is now offering all incoming freshmen a tuition-free graduate degree, making education both affordable and within reach.

“We are excited to clear a path for a new model of higher education that continues to put the student first,” says Vice President of Advancement and Admissions Dr. Nathan B.

“We firmly believe that every student should have the opportunity to pursue their dreams and unleash their full potential,” said Dr. Mary Van Brunt. “With this initiative, we are strengthening the fundamental values of higher education.”

To be eligible, students must:
