October 30, 2022
Jackson College is serving as a champion to support the Michigan Reconnect program in an effort to address a widening skills gap within the state’s workforce.
Hundreds of leading Michigan business, community and legislative leaders say Reconnect is exactly what state employers need to alleviate the shortage of highly skilled and capable workers.
Jackson College has committed to spreading the word about the opportunity Michigan Reconnect is providing for eligible adults locally and statewide.
The program is specifically designed for residents who are 25 years or older and have obtained a high school diploma or equivalent. Michigan Reconnect will help pay the costs of tuition or training for eligible adults who want to pursue an associate degree or technical degree.
In order to be eligible for Michigan Reconnect, adults must meet the following criteria:
- Age 25 and older
- High school graduate or equivalent
- Michigan resident for at least one year
- Not yet completed a college degree (associate or bachelor’s)
Michigan Reconnect pays the remaining balance of tuition and mandatory fees after other state and federal financial aid have been applied.
“We encourage area residents who want to secure their future by pursuing a satisfying, in-demand career to take advantage of what Michigan Reconnect is offering,” Phelan said.More Information
