The Rapid Credentialing Grant is part of a state-wide initiative to help individuals, particularly those negatively impacted by the pandemic, quickly train for a career. The programs are funded by the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief (GEER) Fund under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act Fund and are provided at no cost to students.

The costs covered under the Rapid Credentialing Grant includes - tuition, course fees, and testing costs. There are no financial need requirements for students; however, they must complete the prescribed courses in the set time frame. Program lengths range from one semester to two-and-a-half semesters. Some coursework will be online and some in person, depending on the program. All classes and activities on campus will follow CDC guidelines and local safety ordinances. Eligible students must meet standards of satisfactory academic progress, and provide the College information regarding their job placement after completion of their program.
