Wayne State University, Henry Ford College create transfer pathway to earn four-year degree

Henry Ford College and Wayne State University have teamed up to help clear some of the existing hurdles higher education students face when seeking a four-year degree. A new initiative, titled “Henry Ford College Learn4ward and Wayne State Transfer Pathways,” will provide Henry Ford College students, once they’ve completed their associate degree, guaranteed admission and a full credit transfer to Wayne State University as a junior to earn a bachelor’s degree.  

Students must earn a cumulative 2.5 or higher GPA on a minimum of 60 credits, as well as earn their associate degree, to be eligible for the transfer. The new program also supports Michigan’s 60×30 initiative to increase the number residents who have a four-year degree or professional credentials to 60% by 2030.  

One Detroit Producer and Future of Work host Will Glover sat down with Henry Ford College President Russell Kavalhuna about the impact the program will have on the future of education and work in Michigan. They talk about how the program could make Michigan’s workforce more competitive, the renewed focus on higher education across the state, how the program helps Michigan’s 60×30 goal, and where Southeast Michigan residents can learn more.
