How Do We Do This?

It’s all in the name: we reconnect you with your program and provide you with specialized advising to help you take advantage of the multiple resources available, from state and federal grants for adult learners to childcare services. We also provide you with funding to help you pay for college costs; the MN Reconnect Scholarship awards eligible students  $1,000 per semester, including summer terms.

Our approach is simple. We meet you where you left off, we focus on your academic and career goals, and we help you get back on your path to graduation.

We Are Here For You

When you return to college as an adult learner, you need someone on your side who recognizes that you require something different than an 18-year-old incoming freshman. MN Reconnect navigators are dedicated to making this transition as smooth as possible and will continue to be by your side until the moment you complete your program.
