The University Center on Macomb’s Center Campus has given me many opportunities.
After earning an Associate of Applied Science Degree from Macomb, I chose to complete the University of Detroit Mercy Health Services Administration (HSA) program at the University Center, where students are offered a tuition discount and can obtain their bachelor’s degree in HSA in two years or less. I was introduced to the HSA program at the University Center by Donna Gormely, U of D Mercy coordinator at the University Center, who helps Macomb students transfer. Being able to take most of my classes at the University Center made it a lot more convenient and affordable for me.
U of D Mercy has an agreement with Macomb that allows for the transfer of up to 87 (compared to the typical 63) credits towards the HSA degree, which was awesome! Also, I was very fortunate to have met Dr. Maia Platt, who was one of my instructors and also happened to be my advisor throughout the program. All of the professors that I have had at the University Center have been very helpful, kind, and available always, not only with me but other students as well.
I highly recommend Macomb students to take classes at the University Center. It provided me with a great education and great opportunities for my future career!.
