Alliss Opportunity Grant Program for Adults Returning to College


 

Adults may be eligible to take a college credit course for free at one of Minnesota's community colleges through the Alliss Opportunity Grant Program. The grant covers one course (up to five credits). The cost of books is included in the award, but other restrictions and fees many apply.

Application Process: Contact the community college admissions office for more information and an application. You cannot apply for a grant after you have registered.

Eligibility Requirements: To be eligible for this grant, you must have been out of high school for seven or more years, and not have a bachelor's degree.
