Adults to College


Sometimes life gets in the way of a dream. Work, kids, military, money, health issues – sometimes all of the above.

But it’s never too late.

If you’re thinking about starting or returning to college to prepare for a secure and rewarding career, now’s the time!


MI RECONNECT – FREE TUITION TO COMMUNITY COLLEGES

Michigan Reconnect is a new scholarship program for eligible adults 25 years and older who want to pursue an associate degree or skills certificate.

To be eligible, you must:

– Be at least 25 years old when you apply

– Have lived in Michigan for a year or more

– Have a high school diploma or equivalent

– Have not yet completed a college degree (associate or bachelor’s)

Michigan Reconnect provides free in-district tuition, mandatory fees, and contact hours for accepted and eligible applicants to pursue a Pell-eligible associate degree or skill certificate at any of Michigan’s public community colleges. 

*Most Oceana residents do not live in-district of any community college so this scholarship offers discounted tuition…there are options to cover this gap in funding!

HOW DO I COVER A GAP IN FUNDING FROM MI RECONNECT IF I LIVE OUT OF DISTRICT?

Many residents of Oceana County do not live in district to a community college, therefore MI Reconnect only covers a portion of tuition. Apply below for a scholarship to cover the gap in funding.
