Campus image of Schoolcraft College

The intention of putting up Schoolcraft College (Schoolcraft) in the 1960's
was to provide a community college for the school districts serving
Livonia, Garden City, Clarenceville, and Plymouth-Carton. It was initially
known as Northwest Wayne Community College until 1963; during which year,
the first few buildings of what is now the main Livonia campus were built.
The fall semester of 1964 saw the college's first batch of undergraduates
which has since grown to a per semester count of over 12,000 students (as
of 2012).

Those attending Schoolcraft can choose among at least 70 majors designed
towards earning them certifications or associate degrees which may then be
continued in most public and private four-year colleges or universities in
Michigan. Two years of coursework usually needs to be accomplished prior to
processing transfers. Tuition can cost between $90 per credit hour for
residents to $195 per credit hour for those from out of state.

Majors are divided into several areas of study, including: Public Safety,
Social Sciences, Culinary Arts, Business and Information Technology,
Natural Sciences, Humanities and Communication, Business and Information
Technology, among others. Classes are held both on and off-campus; days,
evenings, and even online to accommodate students who need to work while
studying.

A separate facility - The Public Safety Training Complex - for Public
Safety majors is located in Livonia. Back on the main campus is the
American Harvest Restaurant, considered the pride of the college's
excellent culinary program. The Radcliff Center in Garden City is a venue
for Police Academy and Fire Academy classes as well as a Firearms Training
Lab.

Schoolcraft's Ocelots offer scholarships to students who qualify for their
men's and women's soccer teams, men's cross country, and women's
volleyball. Teams for basketball, golf, and bowling will be formed in the
near future.
