There are many reasons to enroll at HFC. Whether you’re a recent high school graduate, a military veteran wishing to earn a college degree, or a professional seeking career training, HFC offers the resources to help you succeed.
For students seeking a college with exceptional transfer resources, look no further than HFC. HFC is a great place to complete your associate degree and save thousands in college tuition costs. When you are finished with your associate degree, HFC makes transferring to a four-year degree program efficient. Visit the HFC Transfer Resources website at https://www.hfcc.edu/transfer.
HFC offers a Tuition Freeze Guarantee (TFG). This guarantees that a student’s tuition rate will be frozen if they graduate from HFC within four years. Any tuition increase will be refunded upon graduation within that time-frame when the student applies for a refund.
Additionally, HFC has exceptional University Center partnerships with Madonna University, Siena Heights University (SHU) and Eastern Michigan University (EMU). Students can take classes at HFC, then transfer to one of the above-mentioned universities where they can take classes through said universities on HFC’s main campus. These partnerships help students save money, work toward their undergraduate degree and remain close to home. Other benefits include the availability of evening, weekend and hybrid classes; personalized advising; and transfer-friendly policies and guarantees.
Other successful partnerships include the Henry Ford Early College (HFEC) and the Henry Ford Collegiate Academy (HFCA). Additionally, HFC signed a Reverse Transfer Agreement (RTA) with Walsh College in Troy in 2015. HFC’s RTA with Walsh allows students the opportunity to transfer coursework from Walsh to HFC to potentially earn an associate degree. This agreement applies to HFC students who have completed a minimum of 20 credit hours at HFC but have transferred to Walsh before earning an associate degree.
The HFEC launched in 2007 and is comprised of HFC, Dearborn Public Schools and Henry Ford Health System (HFHS) in coordination with Wayne County Regional Educational Service Agency (RESA) and the State Board of Education. HFEC earned a ranking in the 99th percentile of the Top-to-Bottom rankings of Michigan schools in recent years. As a result, HFEC is among the top four schools in Wayne County and the only high school in the group. The goal of HFEC is to prepare students for employment opportunities in health careers.

The HFCA is another partnership between HFC and Dearborn Public Schools. This effort provides students a chance to earn BOTH a high school diploma and an associate degree in only five years at NO COST to parents or students. Students enter the program at the start of their junior year, based on their scores on the PLAN test taken their sophomore year. Music, athletics, clubs, commencement ceremonies, honors night, prom and all other relevant activities are still a part of their high school experience when enrolled in the HFCA. They also have access to all of the programs and offerings of a true college experience at HFC. For more information, please visit http://hfca.dearbornschools.org/.
HFC has also been declared a Military Friendly School for the fifth straight year. In fact, HFC is in the Top 15 Percent of colleges, universities and trade schools nationwide working to ensure the educational success of America’s military service members, veterans and spouses. HFC established the Office of Military and Veterans Service in 2012 and has an active Student Veterans of America chapter on campus.
