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 classes, Cars & Bikes on Campus, Party in the Park, a scavenger hunt, Health & Wellness Center open house, and more!

In the spring, we take it back to our roots with Free College Day classes that highlight the breadth and depth of our programs.
