Connecticut’s Free Community College Program Deadline Approaching

July 11, 2022

If you or someone you know is a recent high school graduate headed to college or university, I have some important information to share with you! The deadline to apply for financial aid through Connecticut's free community college program is fast approaching. Students looking to take advantage of the Pledge to Advance Connecticut (PACT) program are encouraged to apply by Friday, July 15.
 

This session, we passed legislation expanding eligibility for PACT funding to part-time college students.
 
Applicants must be Connecticut high school graduates who are first-time college students, have completed the FAFSA application, plan on taking at least six credits per semester, and are working toward a degree or certificate.
 
The goal of PACT was to make higher education more accessible. Including part time students will further increase the reach of this program.  Click here to learn more.
