- Wayne County Community College District has completed 35 years of uninterrupted operation and development of comprehensive educational services. Both directly and indirectly, our students and the 2.3 million people living within the College's service district have enjoyed the benefits of constantly improved instructional programs and community services. The Wayne County Community College District (WCCCD) is a multi-campus multi-cultural institution seeking to improve the quality of life in our communities. WCCCD provides affordable higher education and flexible training opportunities through a diverse catalog of courses, programs, and initiatives. The College's five campuses are located in industrial, rural and metropolitan areas where a major share of Michigan's technical and skilled occupations is located. Because of the diversity of its service areas, WCCCD places a strong emphasis on occupational and career programs, and traditional college and university transfer programs, including those within the liberal arts discipline. For many of our students the college offers an opportunity to transfer to four – year colleges or universities to obtain advanced degrees. Others pursue self-enrichment through a wide variety of non-credit workshops, from personal financial planning and property management to basic and intermediate computer skill training, through the college's Community Education Department. Wayne County Community College District has received a 10-year accreditation at the associate's degree levels by the Commission on Institutions Higher Education of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

We look at why millions of Americans are choosing community college over a traditional four-year school today.
Many students enroll in community college with the intent of transferring to a four-year school. Of those who do, many succeed, and yet traditional colleges and universities continue to overlook them. Read on to learn more about why more community college students don’t transfer schools and to receive some tips for making the transfer yourself.
Community college is the only option for many students who either can’t afford a traditional four-year university or who need a more flexible school environment. Just because community college is different, however, doesn’t mean that its students matter any less. The Aspen Prize exists to encourage community colleges to do more for their students and to continually strive for improvement.
