Wayne State, University of Toledo to offer four-year programs at Schoolcraft

The University of Toledo (UT) will begin offering four-year degrees in Livonia in the fall of 2014, part of a new partnership to be announced today with Schoolcraft College. The partnership, which will be announced today at 2 p.m., also involves Wayne State University. Both WSU and U-T will offer four-year programs at Schoolcraft, which will make money from renting them the facilities. Under the partnership, Wayne State and U-T will hold classes in a recently purchased building on the edge of Schoolcraft’s campus in northwest Livonia. Degrees in business, nursing, engineering and criminal justice will be offered at the start. Students taking WSU and U-T classes at Schoolcraft will be charged in-state tuition at the schools and be counted as regular students, meaning they will have all the rights as a student living on either WSU’s or U-T’s campuses. “Many of our students are transfer students,” said Wayne State President M. Roy Wilson. “We try to make it pretty convenient for them to come to Wayne State. This partnership will really help with this. As we go forward, this will really help students who want to dual enroll.” The partnership will coordinate more closely a student’s track through Schoolcraft and on to WSU or U-T, lining up classes and making transferring seamless.
