The University of North Alabama is helping nursing and business students finally get their degrees.

They'll use a $1 million grant to help students who stopped going to school with 60 hours left to graduate. Returning students will get a 15% discount on tuition, and if they get into the workforce program, they will get a possible additional $12,000.

"That covers tuition. A portion of that covers actual living expenses, daycare and life expenses, and then, there is a small portion that is dedicated specifically to technology resources, like a laptop or if they needed to set up internet at their home," said UNA Career Center Director, Melissa Medlin.

To find out if you qualify, just call the UNA Career Center at 256-765-4100. The applications will be on the university's website by mid-November.
