What if I need to withdraw from a course or courses?

Every Reconnect participant has a maximum of four years to complete a Pell-eligible skill certificate or associate degree. There may be times when you’ve registered for a course, the add/drop period has ended, and you aren’t sure if this is the right course for you anymore or you’re not able to continue taking the course. That’s okay, but it’s important to know what may mean for your scholarship. 

If you withdraw from a course(s) during your participation in Michigan Reconnect, you can keep your scholarship for the course(s) if your college still charges you tuition for the course(s).

It is important to remember the requirements to maintain the scholarship. You must meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress standards of your college or maintain a minimum cumulative 2.0 GPA in the courses towards your program of study as a Michigan Reconnect participant to remain eligible. Additionally, you must complete 12 credit hours in a full academic year to remain eligible. 

It’s important to stay connected with your college – whether it’s an advisor, college completion coach, office of financial aid – to make sure you’re meeting the requirements to maintain the scholarship and making the choices that are best for you to complete your program of study.
