Baker College is an accredited, private, not-for-profit American college in Michigan that was founded in 1911. Baker College has eight locations throughout the Lower Peninsula of Michigan.
Baker is a career college, featuring more than 150 career programs within its system, although not all programs are available on all campuses. Baker offers certificates, associate, bachelor, master and doctoral degree programs in business, healthcare, human services, education, and technology. These categories include programs such as: nursing, teaching, interior design, architecture, automotive service technology, and computer and Internet technologies. It maintains a right-to-try admissions policy, and couples that policy with an extensive financial aid office to allow for a very broad base of traditional and nontraditional students. Baker College's cohort graduation rate: 9% of enrolled students graduate within 6 years.
Baker is part of the Michigan Association of Collegiate Registrars & Admissions Officers (MACRAO) Transfer Agreement, which provides for transfer of up to 30 semester credit hours to meet many (in some cases all) the general education requirements at participating Michigan four-year colleges and universities. Graduation rates (as reported to the federal government) vary by campus location, with graduation rates for the cohort entering in 2007 ranging from 7% at the Auburn Hills campus to 23% at the Port Huron campus.
