HFC will host Discovery Day on Thursday, Oct. 2, from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the Student & Culinary Arts Center.

Discover Henry Ford College Day allows current and prospective students the opportunity to talk to program experts in one location on one day about more than 100 associate’s degree and certificate programs offered at HFC. Specifically, HFC designed this event to answer a number of important questions students often ask, such as the following:

  • What transfer opportunities are available?
  • What are the strong transfer institutions for specific programs?
  • How long does it take to complete a program?
  • How many full-time instructors teach in each program?
  • Which prior learning credits may be used toward a degree?
  • What articulation agreements are in place for high school classes?

The beauty of this event is that prospective and current students, education partners and parents receive ample time to hear answers from experts in a relaxed environment without any time restraints. They will receive immediate access and in-depth information about programs, available positions within industry sectors, and ways to maximize their experience at HFC. This event is not only valuable to first-year college students and incoming college students, but also high school students.

The venue will be arena style with program representatives located in one area with information students need to choose an academic program that’s the right fit for them. Discover Henry Ford College Day offers students an opportunity to learn from those who teach in the program or work in a particular field what the program entails. The knowledge and insight of experts regarding career opportunities and career pathways will help students discover whether a specific program is a good match for their skills and interest.

A variety of workshops and short presentations will also be available on this day. Some currently in the planning stages include:

  • Women in Technology;
