What we’re able to do through MN Reconnect

Every adult learner needs different support services to complete their program. After an absence from college, the assistance you need now can look very different than it did originally. Minneapolis College can support you with personalized academic and career planning, among other services.

The defining factor of MN Reconnect is access to a navigator. You will not be in this alone and your navigator will continue to support you until you complete your desired program. Your navigator is with you every step of the way from choosing your classes, filling out a FAFSA and acquiring financial aid, to registering on time.

Together, we will design a custom plan for completion of your chosen program. Your academic progress will be evaluated on a continuous basis and you will be connected to the support services that Minneapolis College can offer to ensure your success.

With MN Reconnect, you can take advantage of:

  • MN Reconnect scholarships of $1,000 per semester
  • Up to $1,000 to resolve financial holds
  • Personalized assistance from re-enrollment to graduation

Last year, over $150 million in federal and state grants helped make college affordable for thousands of Minnesota adult learners. These funds, along with the MN Reconnect Scholarship, are available to you, too, and I will help you apply for them.

An affordable education is possible.
