The C.W. Post campus of Long Island University will soon offer tuition discounts to the members of two nearby fire companies that serve the college’s 307-acre property.
The one-third discount will be offered, beginning this fall, to volunteers at Roslyn Rescue Hook & Ladder Co. No. 1 and Roslyn Heights Hook & Ladder Engine & Hose Company, the Brookville college said in a statement. Full-time and part-time students in both graduate and undergraduate programs are eligible
“This partnership will provide an incentive for college-bound volunteer firefighters to stay active in the department while attending a first-class university,” said fire Capt. Jon Sendach.
To receive the discount, which is effective beginning Sept. 7, members must be active and in good standing with the fire department. The agreement between the university and the fire companies will be signed in a ceremony on campus at 10 a.m. Thursday.
“Our mission is to provide high-quality educational and professional opportunities to the volunteers who dedicate their lives and careers to serving the public,” said Paul Forestell, C.W. Post provost.
