As part of the celebration of National Community College Month in April, the Mayor of Ann Arbor, Mich., Christopher Taylor, issued a proclamation urging all citizens to recognize and appreciate the outstanding contributions Washtenaw Community College makes to the community.

WCC Board approves fall semester tuition rates

Ann Arbor, Mich., March 28, 2017 – The Washtenaw Community College Board of Trustees approved a one-percent tuition increase for on-campus in-district students at the March board meeting today. Tuition rate increases also were approved for all distance learning, out-district, out-state and international students. Fees were unaffected.

"Washtenaw Community College remains incredibly affordable and offers extremely competitive rates for both on-campus and online students," said WCC Dr. President Rose B. Bellanca. "For example, WCC has the third lowest in-district tuition rate per credit hour out of 28 comparable community colleges, and WCC's in-district tuition rate is more than 11% less than the average tuition rate of those colleges."

The tuition rate increase for on-campus in-district students is less than the rate of inflation, which was 2.7% for the 12 months ending February 2017.

The new tuition rates go into effect for Fall 2017 semester.

Art Exhibit Examines the Human Figure

When you step across the threshold of WCC’s Gallery One now through Feb. 24, you are struck with the unsettling feeling that a subtle layer of humanity has been deftly peeled away. That feeling draws you farther into a labyrinth of three-quarter walls and oddly shaped spaces, as you pause thoughtfully at the striking pieces of artwork on display.

How to Pay for College

Tracking down financial help for college can be like trying to find directions in an unfamiliar city—without Google Maps. Planning a route is sometimes a frustrating and time-consuming experience. But if you’re persistent, money is often available—and WCC offers lots of help finding it.

WCC Students Seek Haiti Relief Donations

Editor's Note: The African American Humanities Club has extended its fundraising drive to support Haiti disaster relief efforts through Thursday, Feb. 4. Members will have tables Mondays and Wednesdays from 10:00am-3:00pm on the first floor of the Student Center building next to the bookstore, and on Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon-3:00 on the second floor of the Crane Liberal Arts and Science building next to the bridge that connects it to the Gunder Myran building.

WCC Helps With New Year’s Resolutions

So the holidays are over and maybe you overindulged a bit (or a lot) and perhaps your New Year’s resolution is to get healthier (again).

Shuttle Service Will Help Alleviate Parking Problem

On a freezing January day, a large, comfortable shuttle bus pulls up the circle drive in front of the Student Center building every 15 minutes. Students and staff get on and off, some wearing little stickers announcing that they are part of “The Solution.”

WCC Offers Wide Range of Student Activities

For some WCC students, Welcome Day in September is their first introduction to life on campus. Usually held shortly after classes begin, Welcome Day showcases a host of activities on campus that are open to everyone. A Welcome Day for Winter Semester will be held Wednesday, Jan. 27.

Break Time is Work Time at WCC

Twilight will cast a lonely shadow on the sidewalks and hallways of WCC over the winter break from Dec. 24 to Jan. 1. And while the energy level of an otherwise bustling campus is significantly reduced, there will be plenty going on behind the scenes.

Foundation Looks Within for Support

Last winter, for the first time the WCC Foundation couldn’t offer scholarships to all qualified WCC students who applied. Over 500 WCC students depend on Foundation scholarships to continue their education each semester. Times are tough for a lot of people, but many WCC faculty and staff realize how lucky they are to have jobs here and give to students who need a little help. They are some of the most generous supporters of the Foundation. Last year, 127 WCC employees gave money to the Foundation.
