MI Student Aid
The Tuition Incentive Program (TIP) encourages eligible Medicaid recipients to complete high school by providing tuition assistance during an eligible student’s qualifying certificate or associate degree program and also during the student’s bachelor’s degree program.
These two periods of assistance are referred to as ‘Phase I’ and ‘Phase II'.
An application is required and can be completed through the MiSSG Student Portal or by phone at 1-888-447-2687.
Applicants must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
The first institution listed on the FAFSA will be considered the priority school. Students are responsible for notifying MI Student Aid of a change in their college choice. This can be done through the MiSSG Student Portal or by calling 1-888-447-2687.
Eligible students must apply before August 31 of the student’s graduating year from high school or it’s recognized equivalent.
Note: The TIP Application Deadline for Class of 2020 has been extended. Students from the Class of 2020 now have until August 31, 2021 to complete their required application.
TIP Phase I provides tuition assistance to eligible students enrolled in a certificate or associate degree program and taking classes within the program of study.
TIP Phase II provides tuition assistance to eligible students who have a certificate, associate degree, or 56 transferrable semester credits.
Public Act 124 of 1987.
