The opportunity to finish your college degree just got easier!

For a limited time, the Michigan Reconnect program, a tuition-free community college scholarship program, is expanding the qualifying age limit from 25 and older to 21 to 24 – opening the opportunity for up to 350,000 Michiganders without a college degree to earn an associate’s degree or skills certificate through one-time funding.

To be eligible, Michigan residents of one or more years, including already enrolled community college students or potential students, must be at least 21 and not older than 24 between October 1, 2023, and December 31, 2024, and have not already completed a college degree.

Delta College is one of the 31 Michigan community colleges in partnership with the State of Michigan to offer free in-district tuition to residents with a high school diploma who are eligible to pursue a postsecondary education.

“The expansion of the Michigan Reconnect program to this age bracket helps fill a significant need in the funding gap many Delta College students face. This is an amazing opportunity for students to get started or get back on track with completing a degree to help fill the local talent pipeline,” said Jason Premo, Delta’s associate dean of enrollment management. “Because this expansion is only available for a limited time, we stress that students take advantage of this opportunity and apply before the application process closes.”
