Michigan College Resources

CapCAN recommends these Michigan resources to assist students with college exploration and finding the right match and fit for their post-secondary path.

 

MCAN’s Goal is to increase college readiness, participation, and completion in Michigan, particularly among low-income students, first-generation college-going students, and students of color.

 

The Michigan Association of State Universities (MASU) serves as the coordinating board for Michigan’s 15 public universities, providing advocacy and fostering policy to maximize the collective value these institutions provide in serving the public interest and the state of Michigan. This website acts as a gateway for students to learn about the public colleges in Michigan.

 

We Are The Independents is an outreach program of the Michigan Colleges Alliance – a collective of the top 14 excellent independent colleges and universities located throughout Michigan. This website acts as a gateway for students to learn about the private colleges in Michigan.

 

Michigan Colleges Online allows students the opportunity to take classes that aren’t available at their own college for various reasons, while still receiving support services at their convenient "home" college. All credits earned at “Provider Colleges” transfer back to the student's “Home College”.

 

Do you want a job or a calling? A 4-year degree from a Michigan public university can make the difference. And financial aid can make it possible. A four-year degree from a Michigan public university costs an average of 40% less than full price with scholarships and financial aid.
