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, especially for busy adults looking for a high-quality college education close to home.
Consider this: Tuition at Delta College is $2,370 a year for 30 credit hours. That same credit load would cost $6,900 at Saginaw Valley State University or about $11,000 at Northwood University.
That means if you spend two years at Delta and transfer to a four-year university for the rest of your education, you can save about $10,000 or more.
Transfer students get exactly the same diploma as students who spend 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.
Plus, Delta understands that you're trying to fit college into an already busy life. So we offer classes at convenient times, at locations close to home and provide many student support services like tutoring.
