Baker College was founded in 1965 when two educational institutions: Muskegon College, and Baker Business University; merged as one. This newly formed institution, now called Baker College, was managed by Robert Jewell’s team at Muskegon. The new college’s student population and popularity grew steadily until it has reached the level it is in today. Baker College is now the largest independent college in Michigan and offers students more than 150 educational programs which can be taken on campus or online.
Baker College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools and is also a member of the North Central Association. Furthermore, Baker’s certificate and degree courses (on-campus and online) have program-specific accreditation. For instance, Baker’s MBA program is accredited by the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education; and the Master of Occupational Therapy is accredited by two associations: The Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education and the American Occupational Therapy Association.
Tuition for online courses vary depending on the degree chosen. However, there is an abundance of financial assistance in the form of scholarship aids, grant aids, loan aids, and loan aids, available to students who are in need and qualify (based on financial need or academic excellence).
Admission requirements at Baker College vary depending on the program of study chosen. Apart from meeting these undergraduate or graduate requirements, students who wish to enrol in one of Baker College’s online courses must have sufficient knowledge on the use of computers and word processing programs.
