Find your tuition-free community college

  • Your local community college is tuition-free. If you choose a college outside of your community college district, you will need to pay the difference between their in-district and out-of-district tuition. To make sure you found your local college, you can contact the college you’ve picked and ask them if it’ll be tuition-free.


  • FIND YOUR in-district 

    All of Michigan’s 28 public community colleges and the state's tribal colleges accept the Reconnect 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 attend your in-district community college, the Reconnect scholarship will pay for you to get your degree tuition-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 have an in-district community college, it means the voters in your county have decided not to pay property taxes to support a community college. Reconnect will provide a discount on your tuition, but your associate degree or skill certificate will not be tuition-free. The Reconnect scholarship will pay the in-district tuition rate at the community college you choose. You will pay the difference between the in-district tuition rate and the out-of-district rate. This is also true if you choose to go to a community college outside of your district.

    Check out the map to see if you live in the district of the college you are planning to attend. If you’re still not sure, you can contact the community college you’re interested in attending to find out if you live in their district – you can find their dedicated Reconnect email address and phone number in the list below.
