Free In-District Tuition with the Michigan Reconnect Scholarship

Now is the time for Michigan residents over the age of 25 to attend college! The state of Michigan recently announced a new scholarship program to make a college education more affordable and accessible to all residents.

This scholarship program will pay for in-district tuition, technology fees and contact hours not already covered by a Pell Grant or other tuition-only fund. Out-district students who receive the scholarship will be required to pay the difference between the in-district and out-district tuition rates.

To be eligible you must apply with the state of Michigan and meet the following criteria:

  • At least 25 years old when you apply
  • Michigan resident, having lived in Michigan for a minimum of one year
  • Have a high school diploma or GED
  • Have not yet completed any college degrees

Below are four easy steps to complete if you meet the eligibility criteria:

  • Apply for the scholarship on the state of Michigan website
  • Apply to WCC if you are not already enrolled
  • Submit your FAFSA. WCC’s Federal School Code is 002328
  • Enroll in classes at WCC (at least 6 credit hours) and stay enrolled continuously through graduation

Be sure to visit the Michigan Reconnect website for more information or email [email protected] for support.
