Campus image of Delta College

Michigan's Delta College prides itself as being among the best community colleges in the country. From serving less than 2,000 students when they first started in 1961, Delta's main campus now sits on more than 600 acres in Bay County, with smaller locations in Midland (Midland Center), Saginaw (Ricker Center), and Bay City (Planetarium and Learning Center). As of 2012, annual enrollment has reached around 17,000; at least 70% of whom are assisted financially in various forms. The college's faculty boasts of over 200 full-time members, contributing to the over 1,000 employee count.

Delta's academic programs are distributed among the following divisions: English, Math, Science, Social Science, Health and Wellness, Humanities, Business and Information Technology, as well as Technical Trades and Manufacturing. Continuing Education, Career Training, Professional Development, and other courses under similar tracks are administered via the college's LifeLong Learning service. High school students who are at least 14 years of age and are able to perform well on the COMPASS Assessment Test are allowed to pursue special or dual enrollment status, pending a committee interview for admission.

The average tuition cost at Delta is about $3,000 per year and is among the lowest throughout the state. Almost $40 million of the college's yearly resources go to helping students acquire monetary help. Apart from the usual roster of financial subsidies, payment plans at zero interest rates are another option. There are also work-study arrangements both within and outside the campus.

Sports and athletics also form an important part of Delta's entire history. The Delta College Pioneers participate in competitions in basketball, soccer, golf, softball, and baseball. Scholarships for talented athletes are also awarded.  See a tour of the campus by clicking here and get to know Delta College.
