Changes for MI Community Colleges

A college education may be getting more affordable.

Legislation has passed the House to allow community colleges to offer programs of study in select areas leading to a four-year degree.

The schools would offer bachelor’s degrees in energy production, concrete technology, maritime technology, culinary arts and nursing.

20 other states offer a similar setup.

The measure received bipartisan support and passed in the Michigan House on Monday by a 67–43 vote.
