Michigan Reconnect offers eligible adults an opportunity to earn a tuition-free degree

Mid Michigan College is fully participating in the Michigan Reconnect, a program that seeks to provide educational opportunity and lessen the widening skills gap within the state’s workforce.

Reconnect covers in-district tuition and some fees for eligible adults at Mid Michigan College who want to pursue an associate or technical degree. Mid’s in-district service area includes the school districts of Beaverton, Clare, Farwell, Gladwin, Harrison, and Mt. Pleasant.

In order to be eligible for Michigan Reconnect, adults must be between the ages of 25 and 64, have a high school diploma or equivalent, have been a Michigan resident for one year, and have not completed a college degree.

“Students who are 25 years of age and older should definitely consider utilizing the Michigan Reconnect scholarship program,” noted Beth Binder, Interim Director of Admissions at Mid. “The scholarship covers in-district tuition and most fees—a big savings for eligible students!”

Students must apply for federal financial aid using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Once other aid is applied, Michigan Reconnect pays the remaining balance of in-district tuition and mandatory fees. Students not living in a community college district will pay the difference between in-district and out-district tuition, but would still receive a significant reduction in cost.

Registration for the winter semester is available now, and Mid’s experienced team members are ready to help students through every step of the process. Winter courses begin January 9.
