Nationally about 41 percent of all students get their education at community colleges. While starting at a community college has always been a smart move, in today’s uncertain economy, it makes even more sense. By spending two years at a Delta and transferring to a four-year university a student could save over $10,000.
One of the reasons community colleges were created was to provide the first two years of a four-year degree at low cost and close to home. So naturally we do it well. Classes are designed to transfer; academic counselors know where the best four-year programs are; and instructors are dedicated to inspiring students, not preoccupied with their own research projects.
And transfer students get exactly the same diploma as students who spent four years – and a lot more money – at a four-year institution. While Delta College academic courses come in a slightly different wrapper, the quality and content are top-notch. Classes are small, the faculty is committed to teaching, and Delta credits transfer to universities all over the country.
For those students who are planning to transfer to four-year colleges and/or universities, we recommend that you visit the their website to get the appropriate information about their requirements and the Delta College courses that will transfer to that institution. To get an idea of how courses may transfer, visit the Transfer Wizard or the Michigan Transfer Network.
Transferring in? Courses that have been completed at another college or university may apply to a program or degree at Delta College. To have these courses evaluated for Delta College credit, request from the Registrar at each school attended an official transcript be sent to the Delta College Registrar's Office.
