Continuing to pursue key strategies that provide enhanced opportunities for its students, Kalamazoo Valley Community College has created its University Center which combines the degree completion opportunities of four-year schools with the local convenience and services offered at a community college campus.

To put it another way, the University Center concept tightens the linkage between a two-year associate degree and a four-year baccalaureate degree. It allows students to seamlessly transition from one level of education to the next without leaving Kalamazoo Valley’s campuses. [Read More]

Earn Your Bachelor's Degree Without Ever Leaving Kalamazoo Valley's Campus.
You can earn your Bachelor's degree through Kalamazoo Valley's University Center, which offers on-campus transfer programs through partnering universities.

How does this work?
After you complete your associate degree at Kalamazoo Valley, you can apply to any university/college that is a University Center partner (currently Davenport University and Siena Heights University, but more are coming) and take classes on Valley's campus to earn your bachelor's degree. It’s like transferring without ever leaving the comfort of home (a.k.a. Kalamazoo Valley's campus).

What degrees are available?
Currently offered:

Not seeing the degree you are looking for? Not to worry, we are expanding our offerings soon. Discussions are underway with other four-year universities.

What does the program cost?
Kalamazoo Valley low tuition rates for, at least, the first two years (possibly a third year). Special rates may apply for tuition in University Center partner programs.
