Miami Dade College Offering Free Tuition for Spring Term

Nope, it’s not socialism. Nor is it a scam or a hustle or a political anything. It’s very simple. Higher education could be free next term at Miami Dade College.

In an unprecedented move to inject enrollment into a potentially difficult term, the school is offering to cover tuition for up to 13 credits for Spring term, starting on January 6, 2021. Click here for more info.  To receive free tuition,  you must register for classes by this Friday, November 6th. Also, you must apply for FAFSA, which is Financial Aid. Now, if you already receive Financial Aid, then you’re good, you don’t need free tuition because you are already eligible. But, if you don’t qualify for Financial Aid, this promotion effects you.

Is This For You?

If you are young, living at home, and still dependent on your parents who might make too much money for you to qualify, this incentive will benefit you. Also, if you thinking about changing careers or picking up a new skill, this could totally be for you.

This is awesome, by the way. The school is also offering 6 credits for free to anyone who is new to the college OR students who have been away from school for a year. With the pandemic likely to effect society into the Spring, maybe this is the perfect time to take some classes.  There will be all sorts of options for students with many classes offered in either Blended or fully Online modes. Some classes may meet fully in person if conditions allow, but it is too soon to know for sure. Remember, you can also register for mini-term classes which are a fast and efficient way to cruise towards a degree or certificate.
