What is Michigan Reconnect?

Michigan Reconnect is a state scholarship that will help pay the in-district costs of tuition or training for Michiganders age 25 years or older, who have a High School Diploma or GED and want to pursue a certificate or associate degree, either full-time or part-time. Michigan Reconnect pays the remaining balance of in-district tuition and mandatory fees after other state and federal financial aid have been applied.
