What SCC Is 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. South Central College can support you with personalized academic planning and tutoring options, among other services.

The defining factor of MN Reconnect is access to a professional who will support you until you complete your desired program. SCC’s Adult Learner Advisor 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, you and your Adult Learner Advisor, 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 SCC offers to ensure your success.

With MN Reconnect, you can take advantage of:

Scholarships of $1,000 each semester for adult learners from the SCC Campus Foundation and MN Reconnect

Potential to earn college credit for the knowledge you’ve gained in the workplace, military or elsewhere through SCC’s Credit for Prior Learning program

Up to $1,000 to resolve financial holds

Assistance applying for financial aid, which is now available to more students due to increased state and federal funds

Online and in-person tutoring options

Personalized student support services

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.
