Compare This School


The Clinton Township campus is a location of the Baker College school system. It services the northeast suburbs of Detroit, Michigan.

This school grew from two independent institutions that were founded in the early 1900s: Muskegon College and Baker Business College. The two schools merged under one leadership in 1965, creating a comprehensive higher learning institution that incorporated the strengths of both schools.

Today, there are 17 sites – nine campuses and six branch locations – and an online learning system. It offers over 150 degree programs and serves more than 40,000 students. The school continues to adapt and grow, continuously adding new technologies like an integrated campus network, online classes and coursework, and wireless internet access in all college facilities.


The Clinton Township campus offers more than one hundred certificates, associate degrees, bachelor degrees, and post-baccalaureate certificates. Every program and class emphasizes practical applications and real-life experience, preparing students for successful careers directly after graduation.

Most Popular Fields of Study


The admissions process starts by meeting with an Admissions Advisor. Your Admissions Advisor will help you plan your college career, register for any necessary testing or meetings, and fill out your application form. At the Admissions Office, you can also opt to take a campus tour, which will give you an overview of the Clinton Township facilities.

Students can also enroll online by filling out the online application form and submitting the required supplementary documents. Students applying for a degree program will need to present proof of a high school diploma or the equivalent.

Financial Aid

Financial aid is offered to students who demonstrate financial need. To begin the application for financial aid, fill out the FAFSA, which can be accessed for free online at www.fafsa.gov. This form determines your eligibility for student loans, grants, and work-study programs, and is often required as a supplementary document in other financial aid and scholarship applications.

The work-study program lowers tuition costs and fees for students who are employed on their college campus. There are very specific rules for work-study employees, which are outlined clearly on the work-study program page on the school’s website.

If you are also seeking third-party support or academic scholarships, the Financial Aid Office can help you process your outside earnings or counsel you in your search.
