MUSKEGON, MI – Muskegon Community College is encouraging frontline and essential workers in West Michigan to apply for free tuition through the statewide Futures for Frontliners program before the Dec. 31 deadline passes.
More than 430 frontline workers have been accepted to MCC through the statewide program and can begin classes in January 2021, according to a news release issued by the college. Another 2,200 applications are still being reviewed by the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity as of Dec. 1.
That’s why the college is offering its resources to any applicants who may be struggling with the application process or who need help completing the required Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
“With the deadline almost here, we do not want any qualified individual in our community to miss this once-in-a-lifetime educational opportunity,” said MCC Provost and Executive Vice President John Selmon in a prepared statement.
