HARTFORD, Conn. – Julie Larkin received her associates degree from Manchester Community College in 2012, but she wants to go back and get a bachelor’s degree in psychology.

Thanks to a $6 million line item in the state budget, at least three of her three-credit courses at one of the state’s four-year universities will be free.

Larkin began enrollment in the “Go Back to Get Ahead” program Monday and was accepted. She’s one of about 250 former students who have inquired either online at www.GoBackToGetAhead.com or by phone at 1-844-428-4228 about their enrollment in the program.

“I believe that it was fate that this opportunity came to light at this time,” Larkin said. “I was unsure whether I would return to college and finish my four-year degree when she received a call from Manchester Community College.”

The colleges are reaching out to about 65,000 students who may qualify for the program.
