Workforce and Continuing Education (WCE) Tuition Assistance

Paying for school can be difficult and because WCE programs are short-term, they don’t qualify for traditional financial aid programs. However, there are other funding options available for eligible students.

Michigan Achievement Skills Scholarship

  • Designed for recent high school or GED graduates who are pursuing short-term career training.

Michigan Works

  • Eligible students may get financial assistance via the local MiWorks. The link provided is for Macomb-St. Clair, however, other workforce boards also provide educational scholarships through the Workforce Investment and Opportunities Act, as well as other specially funded resources.

Student Options for Success

  • A limited amount of financial support is available for adults returning to school through Macomb Community College’s Student Options for Success (SOS) program offered through Student Services.
