What are the requirements for keeping this scholarship?

In order to continue participating in the Michigan Reconnect scholarship, participants must:

  • Continue to be a Michigan resident.
  • Be continuously enrolled.* That means enrolled for at least 2 semesters for at least 6 credits (each semester) within a 12-month period. The semesters do not need to be consecutive, but the credits must be in your program of study.
    • Good news! Starting Summer 2023, you can be enrolled in as little as 1 credit in your program of study and still receive Reconnect. This does not, however, apply to past semesters. If you enroll in 1 credit or more in your program of study in Summer 2023, it will still count as 1 of the 2 required semesters for this requirement.
  • Maintain a minimum cumulative 2.0 grade point average in the courses you take towards your program of study as a Michigan Reconnect participant.
  • Submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) annually.
