As other higher education institutions in Michigan increase tuition rates and fees, Baker College stands on the commitment to assist students with receiving a quality education at an affordable rate. As announced in June, initiatives for affordability and accessibility continue this fall with a tuition freeze for undergraduate programs, a reduction in graduate tuition, and now free housing opportunities. Additionally, there is no application fee. As a part of Michigan College Month celebrated each October, and the initiative to connect all students with the opportunity for formal education beyond high school, Baker College is committed to ensuring students have the opportunity to explore a full range of postsecondary options and understand the financial support available to them.
The Baker College Board of Directors approved a tuition freeze for all programs for the 2023-2024 academic year. “For so many, the desire to attend college is overshadowed by the inability to do so affordably. At Baker, we want to do what we can to ensure those that want a degree can find a tenable path to earning one,” said Denise Bannan, PhD, chair of Baker College Board of Directors.
“For Baker College to remain true to its mission, we are committed to putting our students first and to providing unique and impactful programs and services that allow more students to access a quality post-secondary education. We don’t want cost to be why students defer their educational dreams.” said Jacqui Spicer, EdD, Baker College president. “We’ve expanded this mission further by offering students free housing on Owosso, Cadillac, and Port Huron campuses, to help even more students in need.”
As National Transfer Week approaches (Oct. 16-20), Baker is committed to making higher education even more accessible for transfer students. Our transfer-friendly process, accompanied by generous transfer scholarships and the unique opportunity for free housing during the spring semester, simplifies the transition. For students seeking affordable tuition and the added benefit of free housing, we encourage you to contact our Director of Admissions, Amanda Gebhardt-Keeton at [email protected] or (810) 510-4915.
