Washtenaw Community College says it won't offer 4-year degrees

By Kody Klein

Washtenaw Community College will not be offering any 4-year programs, despite recent legislation that allows community colleges to do so in select areas of study, reported The Washtenaw Voice.

The legislation allows community colleges to offer degrees in cement technology, maritime technology, energy production technology, or culinary arts.

WCC told The Voice it has no interest in competing with the nearby universities that already offer 4-year degrees.

A good work-around would be to earn two 2-year degrees at WCC.

This is what a lot of people do. Get their associates, save some money and transfer over to EMU and finish their Bachelors. Some can do this in hi school if they can juggle this.

This is a wise decision considering how many four year college graduates still cannot find jobs.

I agree with Washtenaw. They already have a 4 year Technical Middle college, why add anything else. That way they can focus on a smaller more concentrated area of study.
