The state of Massachusetts is set to provide free community college for residents over the age of 25. The program, called MassReconnect, supports residents 25 and older with free associate degrees and high-quality certificates.
“Education is our calling card: It's a huge competitive advantage for Massachusetts,” said Massachuesetts Governor Maura Healey, “It elevates our workforce, it attracts employers to our state, and it puts us at the forefront of what is now very much a global economy.”
MassReconnect will cover all costs associated with community college certificates and degrees, including all costs related to tuition, fees, books and supplies. This program is part of a larger strategy to boost enrollment, graduations, and education across the state.
