Webb Institute Offers Free College Tuition, But Here’s the Catch [Video]By Anne Margiereth Robles, UniversityHerald Reporter
Soon-to-be college students might already be looking for a good quality, yet affordable school by now. And while it is not easy to look for one, here's a New York college that offers not only 100 percent free college tuition, but also 100 percent job placement rate.
Webb Institute is one of the very few schools in the United States that offer a free tuition for college education, Business Insider reported. This school is also proud to be one of those that offer strong academic programs and the nation's best schools for undergraduate education.
According to the school's official website, they are recognized as a college with outstanding academics and are highly recommended to the applicants by The Princeton Review. While it really sounds very promising, there is actually a catch in all of these for the attendees. The students who aspire to enjoy all of these rewards must take double major in naval architecture and marine engineering.
Webb has very few students, which is why they can assure the best learning experience, considering that the ratio is about 8:1. They have an enrollment of roughly 90 students and have direct access to their professors. And unlike any other colleges, it is the not the students that switch classrooms; their professors are the ones who change rooms between classes.
Because of their strict and rigorous academic standards, the graduates get to experience the rewards after college because the students all can immediately find employment in the maritime industry. They also can land promising careers in the fields of engineering and finance.
So for the incoming college students who are interested to take majors in naval architecture and marine engineering, but could hardly afford college, Webb Institute would be the best school to provide the amazing opportunity for those who want a high quality education for free.
