Academic Program Improvement

Baker College is committed to continuously improving our programs and courses. Processes are in place to monitor student learning and evaluate program excellence. Each year, every program submits an annual assessment report which includes data on enrollment, retention and graduation numbers as well as student performance. Student performance measures include what students know and are able to do at the completion of each program based on the program's outcomes. The data from this report is discussed at program and advisory board meetings, and it is used to make program improvements.

In addition to ongoing improvements, several programs will be undergoing a more rigorous review process during 2010-11. These programs include the associates in surgical technology, the bachelor of computer science, and all programs associated with early childhood education. Other programs may be added throughout the year. A review of the course requirements for general education math is also underway. It is anticipated that changes could occur in these programs for the 2011-12 academic year.

For additional information about program improvement, please contact the assessment office at assessment@baker.edu.

Transfer of Credit Policies

Baker College credits are accepted at most colleges and universities. The exact amount of credits accepted depends upon the compatibility of the Baker College courses with the requirements for the degree sought. Students should check with the institution to which they intend to transfer for information on that institution's transfer credit policy. Non-traditional credit (experiential, articulation, etc) may not be transferable to other colleges.

The Baker College Academic Office evaluates transfer credits from another college or university on a case-by-case basis. Each official academic transcript is evaluated to see if the transfer credit qualifies as part of the student's program step plan at Baker College. If the credit qualifies, the student is not required to take that class at Baker College. If you are a student transferring to Baker College, please visit http://www.baker.edu/transfers/ for more information.

Readmission Requirements for Service Members

Service members who desire to re-enroll into Baker College after active duty need to contact the Veteran representative on the campus to be re-admitted. The Veteran representative will review and explain the Baker College readmission policy and procedures to the student. Please contact the Academic Office on your campus for further information.

Net Price Calculator

The purpose of the Net Price Calculator is to help current and prospective students, families and other consumers estimate the individual net price of an institution of higher education for a student. The results provided by the calculator are an estimate and do not represent a final award determination or final net price.

The calculator will ask a series of questions to determine dependency status, estimated cost of attendance and approximate expected family contribution (EFC). Based on the responses provided, the calculator will estimate an average cost of attendance that other students, similar to you, paid in the given year.

The estimated financial aid is based on a specific group of first-time, full-time degree or certificate seeking undergraduate students. These are students who enrolled in a postsecondary school for the first time and who attended 12 or more credits each quarter. As you make comparisons among colleges, keep in mind the estimated financial aid includes Federal, State and Institutional aid and does not take into account any third party funding, private grant, scholarships or loan aid that may be available to students.
