You’ve changed since the last time — a lot of adult students find that they approach school differently the second time around. You've got more life experience now and probably have an even more clear sense of why you are coming to school than you did the first time. In fact, adult students often have a higher GPA than traditional age students. We also offer academic renewal which provides you an opportunity to establish a new GPA. Your counselor can help you determine if this would benefit you.
We have also changed! We offer online tutoring, more online classes, and dedicated program advisors as supports that might not have been in place the last time you were in school.
If you have already earned 15 college level credits and it has been at least 2 years since you attended, then you may qualify for the MN Reconnect Program. You'll have access to a dedicated navigator who will provide support throughout your journey, access to additional scholarship funds – up to $1,000 per semester – and funds to help remove financial holds if they are preventing you from enrolling. See if you qualify!
