FROM THE Schools

For five decades, the Wayne County Community College District has helped students achieve their goals and make their dreams a reality through a world-class education.

Through its six state-of-the-art campuses in Wayne County, which are located in Detroit, Belleville, Harper Woods and Taylor, WCCCD is serving 70,000 students and offering the guidance and support needed for those students to achieve success in their futures.

From a proactive student services department that assists with registration and financial aid questions to academic advising and grade monitoring, students are supported every step of the way.

WCCCD boasts nearly 100 certificate and degree programs, including accounting, criminal justice, international business and more Ñ which are offered at affordable tuition rates Ñ and places a strong emphasis on occupational and career programs, along with traditional college and university transfer programs.

Among the programs at WCCCD, students can enroll in the nursing program, which is approved by the Michigan Board of Nursing, as well as accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. Through the nursing program, students can obtain an associate degree in nursing and are then encouraged to transfer to a four-year university to complete their bachelor's degree through partnerships at the Mary Ellen Stempfle University Center.

Or, through WCCCD's allied health programs, students can earn degrees in areas including anesthesia technology, pharmacy technology, surgical technology, dental hygiene and more.

In addition to its many program offerings, WCCCD gives students an opportunity to study abroad, which is a wonderful way to become global-minded, build new relationships and experience new things.

The study abroad program is one of the offerings that Dr. Curtis Ivery, the CEO and chancellor of WCCCD, is most proud of.

"It's a wonderful opportunity for our students to explore the world beyond the classroom by traveling to other countries to learn," he says.

For students who are looking for a bit more flexibility in their schedules due to work and other commitments, online, live-interactive online and interactive television courses are offered, as well.

High schoolers also can participate in dual enrollment through WCCCD's Virtual Middle College. It's designed to help high school students jumpstart their college education, and it consists of online courses for college credit. It's open to all eligible high school students.
