Legislature Approved $24 Million In New Aid For MNSCU Students

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - More financial aid is coming for part-time, working students in the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system.

The Legislature approved $24 million in new aid for these students, who are often older than traditional full-time students and juggle jobs with coursework to pay the bills. The St. Cloud Times reports these students are becoming increasingly common at MnSCU schools. As they've been calculated, need-based state grants for part-time students are less than proportional to the aid they would get if they were going to school full time.

For instance, a student taking 60 percent of a full-time courseload didn't get 60 percent of the aid they would get as a full-time student. But most of them will now get aid proportionate to what they would get as a full-timer.
