Start Here and Save

Want to build a strong foundation for your future, but worried about the cost of higher education? At Washtenaw Community College classes are affordable, scholarships are plentiful and the college also provides plenty of assistance if you need financial aid.

Even better, WCC’s credits transfer to many four-year colleges and universities. This means you can complete the many general education requirements of your bachelor’s degrees at a fraction of the cost.

In fact, our students tell us they feel better prepared after attending WCC than their counterparts who began as freshman at four-year institutions. And, compared to private and public four-year colleges and universities, WCC students pay thousands less in tuition.


WCC offers numerous scholarship and grant opportunities. Some scholarships require financial need, some are based on merit and some combine both criteria. There also are scholarships available just for graduating high school seniors.

In addition, the WCC Foundation gives more than $500,000 in scholarships to over 1,000 students each year. The scholarships are awarded based on a combination of financial need and merit.

WCC offers many affordable payment options, including bi-weekly or monthly payment plans. These plans include:

  • Convenient method to pay for credit classes
  • Automatic withdrawals from checking, savings, credit/debit card
  • Early enrollment to spread payments out longer
  • Authorize someone else to make payments for you
  • Automatic emails sent when any changes occur to your account
