Fall semester at Henry Ford College Starts Thursda y, Aug. 25 – Register Today!

August 10, 2016, Dearborn, Mich. — With more than 120 associate degree and certification programs, a new bachelor’s degree program in Culinary Arts, a tuition-freeze guarantee, a university center and exceptional transfer resources available, NOW is the best time to register for the fall 2016 semester at Henry Ford College (HFC). HFC is a FutureDriven educational institution dedicated to YOUR success. Classes begin Thursday, Aug. 25. 

HFC offers courses and programs that respond to the changing needs of students, community and corporate partners. In addition, HFC continues to develop relationships with industry and organizations that provide new career and educational opportunities for students. 

If you’re interested in studying Culinary and Hospitality Studies, check out HFC’s four-year bachelor program in Culinary Arts. Launched at the beginning of 2016, this is the first four-year degree offered by HFC. The program represents an exceptional enhancement to HFC’s award-winning Culinary Arts program and responds directly to industry needs. Additionally, the American Culinary Federation Education Foundation (ACFEF) Accrediting Commission renewed a seven-year grant for HFC’s Associate of Applied Science in Culinary Arts Degree program late last month.

Also this fall, HFC has updated its Heating Ventilation Air-Conditioning (HVAC) program to meet the ever-changing needs of the industry. Given the high demand for heating/cooling professionals, HFC’s HVAC program has reduced the number of academic credits required for an associate degree in applied science from 23 to 16 with the blessing of the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). Since there was a reduction in required academic classes, more HVAC classes were added, resulting in the elimination of electives, as well as a defined direct exposure to residential and commercial heating and cooling systems.

HFC has also formed partnerships with Madonna University, Siena Heights University (SHU), and Eastern Michigan University (EMU), creating a new University Center on its main campus. Through these partnerships, students can take classes through Madonna, SHU, or EMU at HFC. This helps them save money, work toward their undergraduate degree and remain close to home. Other benefits include availability of evening, weekend and hybrid classes; personalized advising; and transfer-friendly policies and guarantees. 

Last month, HFC signed a transfer agreement with the University of Michigan-Dearborn (UM-Dearborn) where students can transfer their credits toward an undergraduate degree in Engineering at UM-Dearborn. It enables students to begin their education at HFC, earn an associate degree and then transfer to UM-Dearborn to complete their studies toward a designated undergraduate degree in Engineering. A maximum of 72 credits will transfer to UM-Dearborn.
