Michigan Reconnect provides up to 100% tuition assistance
Montcalm Community College is serving as a champion to support the Michigan Reconnect program in an effort to help address a widening skills gap within the state’s workforce.
Michigan Reconnect is for residents who are 25 years or older and have obtained a high school diploma or equivalent. Michigan Reconnect will help pay the costs of tuition or training for eligible adults who want to pursue an associate degree or skills certificate. Michigan Reconnect pays the remaining balance of tuition, at the community college’s in-district rate, and mandatory fees after other state and federal financial aid have been applied.
“We believe Michigan Reconnect will not only help individuals and families pursue their dreams, but it will also help build a strong economy that requires a talented and modern workforce to compete for the jobs of the future,” said MCC President Dr. Stacy H. Young.
In order to be eligible for Michigan Reconnect, adults must meet the following criteria:
- Age 25 or older
- High school graduate or equivalent
- Michigan resident for at least one year
- Not yet completed a college degree (associate or bachelor’s)
“We encourage area residents who want to secure their future by pursuing a satisfying, in-demand career to take advantage of what Michigan Reconnect is offering,” Dr. Young said.
