List of Colleges

If you live within a community college district and attend your local community college, tuition is free. If you attend a college outside of your community college district, you will need to pay the difference between their in-district and out-of-district tuition rates. To make sure you attend the college that considers you 'in-district', you can contact the college you've picked and ask.

Find Your In-District Community College

All of Michigan's public community colleges accept the Futures for Frontliners scholarship, but the cost of attending community college will depend on whether you are an in-district or out-of-district student.

  • For in-district students. If you live within a community college district and attend your local college, tuition is free. That means you won't pay any tuition or mandatory fees out of pocket. About 80% of Michigan students live in a community college district. 
  • For out-of-district students. If you don't live in a community college district or choose to attend a college in Michigan that considers you to be out-of-district, you will need to pay the difference between their 'in-district' and 'out-of-district' tuition rates.

Visit the Michigan Community College Association website to view where the public community colleges are in Michigan. To see if you live in within a community college district, check out this map or click on the links below to find the college's dedicated Futures for Frontliners email address and phone number in the list below.
