One college is taking a bold step to enroll students: a money-back guarantee.
Lansing Community College just announced a new incentive, “Get a Skill, Get a Job or Your Money Back,” aimed at students in short-term training programs.
If students who successfully complete training can’t find a job in the field within the year, the school promises to refund their money.
The offer will apply to four occupational programs: pharmacy technicians, customer service call center workers, certified quality inspectors and home technology integration technicians.
“Why spend money and take time to learn when you may not get a job?” LCC president Brent Knight told the Lansing State Journal.
More details are on the way next month, and the college expects to start its guarantee in May.
