Free College Day

Free College Day

Twice a year, Washtenaw Community College opens our doors for Free College Day. This popular event is a chance for us to share the exciting educational and life changing opportunities our students get to experience every day with our community.

In the fall, WCC hosts a campus-wide celebration that includes Free College Day, Cars & Bikes on Campus, Party in the Park, program open houses, campus tours, and more!

In the spring, we take it back to our roots with Free College Day classes that highlight the breadth and depth or our programs. This is also an opportunity for us to share in celebrating National Community College Month with our community partners, family and friends!
