This resource provides information about potential financial aid opportunities for post secondary education.
To meet the financial eligibility requirement, a student must have (or have had) Medicaid coverage for 24 months within a 36-consecutive-month period as identified by the Michigan Department of Human Services.
If a student has been told that they are not eligible for TIP, but feel they should be eligible based on the criteria, the student may appeal their status. The appeal has to be for a mitigating circumstance - examples include but are not limited to: student was incarcerated during application period, student moved frequently and did not receive information that they were eligible (which SSG can confirm through returned mail entered in the notes section of the TIP database), student was hospitalized/injured during application period, etc. Appeals are never guaranteed for approval; however, will be reviewed by the Director for a determination. An appeal explanation and supporting documentation needs to be sent to:
