MN Reconnect Program
The Minnesota Office of Higher Education (OHE) and Minnesota State have partnered to develop a new program to support adult learners called MN Reconnect. The program is made possible by financial and technical support from the Lumina Foundation and the State Higher Education Executive Officers (SHEEO). The program supports Minnesota State students through specialized services, who return to college during fall of 2019 to earn a credential of economic value after an absence of two or more years.
