You Started.
Now Let Us Help You Finish.

We get it: adult learners have different needs and require different solutions to achieve their educational goals. Factors like available childcare, reliable transportation, extended evening hours, and veteran services can be the difference between finishing school or not.

MN Reconnect Can Help Get You There.

MN Reconnect is designed exclusively to support adult learners re-enrolling in college. We create a custom plan for each learner that delivers the resources and guidance needed to succeed in a flexible and supportive environment. It doesn’t matter if you are just a few credits away or would like to start a new academic journey, we will help you achieve your goals.

If you are a Minnesota resident age 25 or older and have completed 15 or more college credits without earning a degree, MN Reconnect can help you complete your education. We provide specific services and resources to help adult learners successfully complete a certificate, diploma or associate program.

Our participating colleges have proven themselves to be truly exceptional in their support for adult learners. With MN Reconnect you can finally earn your degree.

MN Reconnect has allowed me to surpass my own expectations and opened the door for countless possibilities.


MN Reconnect has definitely had a positive impact on my ability to return to college and finish the degree I had abandoned years ago.


This scholarship has eased the financial burden and allowed me to focus on completing my degree. I’m grateful for this.


Knowing there's a group willing to help people like me – who started out on the path to improving themselves, their families, and society, but were derailed along the way – gave me a strong sense of hope I haven't felt in a very long while.
