Propel Approved as Comprehensive Transition and Postsecondary Program

The Propel Program recently received approval as a Comprehensive Transition and Postsecondary (“CTP”) Program from the United States Department of Higher Education.   As an approved CTP Program, Propel students who qualify may receive funding from Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, and Federal Work-Study programs.  This approval paves the way for students who might otherwise not have access to a postsecondary program.  Since UMKC Propel Program does not charge any additional fees, besides those charged to any UMKC student, this approval allows students to pay a large portion of their tuition and fees through these federal programs.
