Washtenaw Community College Adds Central State University to HBCU Pathway Program

Central State University in Ohio is the latest historically Black college or university to join the HBCU Pathway program at Washtenaw Community College in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The community college enrolls more than 10,000 students. African Americans make up 15 percent of the student body.

The community college’s HBCU Pathway program provides its students, as well as local high school students, with the opportunity to connect with representatives from HBCUs across the country. Most of the program’s participating HBCUs offer guaranteed admission, as well as tuition assistance, priority housing consideration, simplified transfer options, scholarships, and support services.

Earlier this month, Washtenaw Community College hosted its second annual HBCU Day. The event brought over 400 high school students to the community college’s campus to learn about the program and meet with the participating HBCU institutions.

Central State University is the seventh HBCU to participate in the pathway program. The other HBCU partner institutions are Alabama A&M University, Alabama State University, Tuskegee University in Alabama, Jackson State University in Mississippi, Mississippi Valley State University, and Southern University in New Orleans.
