Minnesota TRiO programs offer pre-college and post-secondary programs designed to help students with low incomes and first generation students enter and graduate from college. Go to the website at http://mntrio.org/.
Students under state guardianship or Indian children under tribal guardianship at age 18 are eligible to receive tuition waivers if they are under age 21 and accepted into a Minnesota state college or university.
Contact the school you plan to attend to request a tuition waiver and the type of documentation required.
A waiver covers only the cost of your tuition and no other school-related or living expenses.
Colleges may continue to waive tuition up to and beyond age 21 for students meeting eligibility requirements.
If you have questions about waivers, or issues with your school offering a waiver, contact Minnesota's Education and Training Voucher program coordinator at Dhs.Etvcoordinator@state.mn.us or 651-431-4663.
