Belhaven University offering free online master’s programs to full-time students

Belhaven University is offering free online master’s degree programs to full-time students amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“In the midst of this dramatic rise in COVID-19 infections, we cannot operate in normal ways and expect a good outcome,” Belhaven University President Roger Parrott said in a press release. “I’m thrilled we can be the only university in America responding to COVID-19 with such an innovative solution that will propel our students academically and in their future careers.”

The scholarship is for freshmen, transfers, and all returning students who enroll for the fall semester’s traditional campus program. Students must also stay enrolled every semester as a full-time, traditional-campus student until they graduate. The full-tuition scholarship can be used for any of Belhaven University’s Online Master’s Degrees.

“This will not be the year our students planned when they first dreamed about going to college,” Parrott said. “Free master’s degrees is our way of helping our students push through these hard adjustments, in order to succeed at an even higher level educationally.”
