NEW! MnSCU Two-Year Occupational Grant Pilot Program
The purpose of this program is to provide financial assistance to students enrolled in qualifying career and technical programs at MnSCU two-year colleges so that students can complete the program within two years or less and find employment in a high-demand occupation.
It will be implemented for the 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 academic years as a pilot program. This is a great opportunity to receive a two year degree at little to no cost to you! The grant covers any remaining tuition and general fee charges after the student's Federal Pell Grant and MN State Grant have been applied to the student's account.
Please visit the Office of Higher Education for more information to see if you can qualify for this grant as well as a list of qualifying occupational programs.
