Kalamazoo Valley University Center: Get a Bachelor’s Degree on Kalamazoo Valley’s Campus!

In addition to options that enable students to transfer to complete a bachelor’s degree, we have established the Kalamazoo Valley University Center that allows students to complete a bachelor’s degree from a partner university, on our campus - in their desired program, quickly and cost effectively. Agreements made with our partner universities promote the necessary coordination and collaboration enabling our students to achieve their educational goals streamlined to accommodate their personal requirements.

Students no longer have to decide early between making a four-year commitment to a bachelor’s degree versus completing a go-to-work associate degree recognized by industry – they can do both by making the right decision at the right time!

Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Enroll and register at Kalamazoo Valley to begin classes toward a two-year AA, AS, or AAS degree.

Step 2: Meet with a representative from one of our partner universities to explore a bachelor's degree program. Meeting early allows the University Center representatives as well as Kalamazoo Valley advisors and counselors to guide you appropriately as you progress through your associate degree.

Step 3: After completing your two-year degree from Kalamazoo Valley, begin years three and four of your bachelor's degree and graduate from one of our partner universities.

The process is seamless. Remaining courses are offered through university partners located on Kalamazoo Valley’s campus. In many cases, a third year of study at Kalamazoo Valley’s tuition rates is also possible. Students may enroll directly upon graduation from Kalamazoo Valley or at any time in the future.
