Free College Day Classes

Twice a year, Washtenaw Community College opens our doors for Free College Day. This popular event is a chance for us to share the exciting educational and life changing opportunities our students get to experience every day with our community.

In the fall, WCC hosts a campus-wide celebration that includes Free College Day classes, Cars & Bikes on Campus, Party in the Park, a scavenger hunt, Health & Wellness Center open house, and more!

In the spring, we take it back to our roots with Free College Day classes that highlight the breadth and depth or our programs.

Choose from classes taught by our WCC full, part-time and community enrichment faculty on a wide variety of topics.

Registration required (opens September 5). Children under 14 are welcome with an adult.
