WayneDirect: Macomb Community College
This program is for Macomb Community College students who want to get a head start on earning their bachelor's degree from Wayne State. We even give you the opportunity to concurrently enroll in classes at Wayne State while you continue working toward an associate degree at Macomb. You have the advantage of working with faculty and staff from both institutions to make a smooth transition to Wayne State once you complete courses at Macomb.
Concurrent enrollment allows you the flexibility of taking courses at both institutions, broadens course availability and location of courses. While many courses are offered at Wayne State’s main campus in Detroit, a variety of programs also are offered at University Center - Macomb, on the South Campus of Macomb Community College, and at our newest building, the Macomb Education Center in Clinton Township, for your convenience. Check out our list of programs to review the newest course offerings at these locations.
Eligible participants include currently enrolled Macomb Community College students and recent high school graduates who have enrolled in courses at Macomb. Download the Macomb WayneDirect application for more information and to apply.
Concurrently enrolled Macomb WayneDirect participants also can receive financial aid from Wayne State University. Please review the Macomb WayneDirect application for details.
Beginning in fall 2011, this pilot program offers concurrent enrollment for Macomb students invited to join Wayne State University’s Irvin D. Reid Honors College as Honors WayneDirect students.
Incoming freshman students at Macomb who are chosen for Honors WayneDirect will register simultaneously for the standard WSU Honors freshman year sequence (HON 1000, PS 1010 Honors). Macomb students will attend the lecture portion of the course virtually (one hour per week); they also will register for a small-enrollment seminar to be conducted by WSU Honors faculty at the Macomb University Center.
As Honors WayneDirect students, Macomb students will be full-fledged members of the Honors College freshman class, including taking part in Cultural Passport and all related events. During their second year, Macomb students will again register for one WSU Honors course per semester.
This plan allows students who begin their careers at Macomb to graduate from WSU with University Honors — the highest academic distinction the University offers and previously unavailable to community college transfer students.
Students invited into Honors WayneDirect will receive a Presidential Honors WayneDirect Scholarship.
