Michigan Allows Community Colleges to Offer Some 4-Year Degree Programs

LANSING, Mich. — Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder has signed a law that will allow community colleges to grant bachelor’s degrees in several fields of study.

The Republican governor’s signature Friday on a bill passed this month by the Legislature paves the way for community college students to receive the four-year degrees in culinary arts and energy production, maritime and cement technology.

The bill was revised to remove nursing from the list of bachelor’s degrees the colleges would be able to grant.

The state’s universities have argued against legislation that erases the distinction between two- and four-year institutions or duplicates programs already offered.

Michigan has 28 community colleges and 15 public universities.
