WCC Description

Washtenaw Community College in Ann Arbor, Michigan, offers over 100 degree and certificate programs in academic and professional subjects, with students guaranteed a transfer to a four-year school, if that’s their goal.

Associate’s degrees and professional certificates are awarded through approximately a dozen distinctive departments, which include:

  • Automotive and Motorcycle Technology

Students may also obtain an associate’s degree in liberal arts or general studies. This is particularly useful if they plan to transfer to a four-year school, such as University of Michigan or Eastern Michigan University, two of the schools with which Washtenaw has transfer agreements.

Washtenaw is also home to one of the oldest collection of fossils in the region.

Associate’s degree applicants will need to fill out an application, attend an online orientation session and submit SAT or ACT scores or take the Compass exam. Anyone with a high school diploma or GED may apply. Those interested in taking non-degree classes may enroll without applying.

Washtenaw accepts federal financial aid awards like grants and loans. Scholarships are also awarded and may be based on financial need or a combination of financial need and academic performance. Students who still require financial aid may obtain information about outside loans and scholarships from a Washtenaw financial aid officer.
