The teachers and curriculum here are what makes Washtenaw Community College more than just a community college. The teachers are absolutely phenomenal, they work with you, they're polite, and extremely professional. The classes they teacher are enough to keep you in college, having fun, and coming back to class. I really enjoy the campus and the layout is extremely well. There are amazing tutoring programs and a great deal of resources available. A lot of the resources are extremely easy to find. This is a great school, and if you live in the area it is pretty cheap per credit hour as far as colleges go. I would check this school out if I were you, amazing, amazing school!

Washtenaw Community College has an open door policy they accept everyone. This college makes it easy for people to go back to school offering scholarships payment arrangements and low cost classes. It's a safe environment which helps with the learning process and the instructors and college administrators are wonderful. I would recommend this college to everyone. I was hesitant on returning back to school due to my age. All the staff in the admissions, financial aid and counseling service dept made me feel so welcomed and encouraged me to return. Now I am a student of the health care foundations program. I love it!
Caveat: I'm a thirty-something student who returned to school to pursue a new career path..

Advising and student services have provided a fair amount of (occasionally inconsistent) support. With repeated visits to the Student Center, you'll eventually get one you need. Most of my professors have been excellent -- they're teaching because they want to help students to succeed. There have been a couple rare exceptions, but I mostly avoided that trap by visiting "professor rating" websites in advance.

The campus itself is nice, with plenty of parking. There is also a system of indoor bridges that connects most of the buildings. Dining services are limited, but the staff are cheery and pleasant to interact with.

Academics at WCC are not a joke. If you attend here, you can expect to work hard to receive high grades. This can be stressful at times, but I suspect it also leads to WCC having an above average reputation (as community colleges go).
