An education beyond high school opens the door to many new personal and career opportunities, including higher wages. Michigan Reconnect can help you get there – may be even tuition-free.
Reconnect is a last-dollar scholarship program, which means that any Pell grant or tuition-restricted funds are applied to your tuition and fees bill first, with Reconnect paying what is not covered. If you don’t qualify for a Pell grant or tuition-restricted funding, Reconnect will pay up to the in-district tuition and mandatory fee costs.
