Community College Offers Money-Back Guarantee

Testament to CTE’s philosophy that education should prepare students to succeed in both college and career, a Michigan community college is offering students a refund if their education doesn’t land them a job within a year of completion.

A Time article released earlier this month, featured Lansing Community College, the third largest community college in the state. The college is guaranteeing a job to students who take six-week courses in the four most in-demand technical jobs in the area: call-center specialists, pharmacy technicians, quality inspectors and computer machinists.

The money-back guarantee is a pilot program and is to only 61 students, who may be vying for a job in Lansing where unemployment is at 11.7 percent.
