Why Attend a Community College in Michigan?

Community colleges can be an ideal place for students to start their higher education. With a lower tuition and a guaranteed acceptance policy, you can take challenging classes and chart a course to a better vocational future by leveraging education to help get you there. Consider either a general Associate of Arts (AA) degree or a direct-entry degree program to help get you on the right track. The AA degree will provide you with a set of classes intended on providing a solid educational framework to build upon to earn your bachelor’s degree from a 4-year college or university. A direct-degree program, on the other hand is a degree or certificate program designed to help you step directly into the workforce upon completion. Examples of a direct entry degree or certificate can include auto mechanics, esthetician, welding, auto body, corrections officer, bookkeeping, and court reporting.
