Reconnect is a scholarship program that pays for all Michiganders who are 25 or older who don’t have a college degree to attend their local in-district community college tuition-free.

Apply Today for Michigan Reconnect @  https://www.michigan.gov/reconnect/0,9968,7-417-102946_102969—,00.html

Eligibility requirements:

  1. Be at least 25 years old when you apply
  2. Have lived in Michigan for a year or more
  3. Have a high school diploma or equivalent
  4. Have not yet completed a college degree (associate or bachelor’s)

To receive the Reconnect scholarship, you must complete four steps:

  1. Apply online for Michigan Reconnect. The application takes less than five minutes to complete and can be done on a mobile phone. If you are having difficulties on your mobile device, it is recommended to use a different browser or computer.
  2. Apply to community college. All community colleges and tribal colleges in Michigan qualify. If you’re already a community college student, this step is completed.  If you’re not, remember your tuition is free at an in-district community college, but that Reconnect only pays part of the tuition if you attend an out-of-district community college.
  3. Submit your FAFSA. This is financial aid provided by the federal government.
  4. Enroll in an eligible program and start classes. You must be in school at least half-time and stay enrolled continuously through graduation.

 

 

University of Michigan Dearborn

SOAR Program

Students can major in any of the 90+ majors the university offers. All incoming SOAR students take LIBS 191: Academic Renewal Seminar for Returning Adults, a one-credit, eight-week, online course to refresh or enhance their academic skills – strategies for academic reading, writing, note-taking, studying and researching. An added benefit is that the course brings new SOAR students together in community so that they can build a supportive network of peers which contributes to their university experience and overall success. 

  1. Prospective students must be over age 25 (or if under 25, a parent or veteran).
  2. Must be eligible for financial aid (Pell Grant) with no loans currently in default.
  3. Cannot owe a balance at another college or university.
  4. Have a minimum of 24 transferable credits from other colleges with a recalculated GPA of 2.5 or higher.
  5. Michigan residency required.
  6. Please see attached flyer.
  7. Our goal in SOAR is to graduate every student! Here is a link to our updated webpage with links for applying: umdearborn.edu/soar

SESSION FULL!

Have you ever wondered why workforce programming must be so difficult, or how and why decisions are made? Workforce policies – at the federal, state, and local levels – have significant implications for funding usage and service delivery. They can be challenging to interpret and implement, and even more challenging to develop, but policies are an essential part of what we do and how we do it. This Policy Academy has been developed for Michigan Works! agency staff who are responsible for interpreting, implementing, and/or writing policy. This session is intended to upskill your policy prowess, both to interpret and to write policy. In addition, you will expand your policy network with other MWA staff. This session has been developed and is being led by two senior workforce development policy staff with a combined 65 years of policy and program experience.

The Effective Facilitator/Trainer

  • Otsego County Library (map)

Public speaking, let alone training groups of people can be overwhelming, intimidating and even a fearful experience for some. The good news is that training others can prove to be a positive experience that empowers others to tap into their full potential. It is important that certain skills are implemented in order to ensure success for the participants being trained and for the fulfillment of the trainer. When the trainer feels they are reaching their audience and the audience feels stimulated, informed, and engaged, the training can then be impactful and considered a success.
