At that meeting, if a schedule adjustment needs to be made, arrangements will be made with the Equal Access Counselor.


What do I need to do to prepare prior to orientation?

New Students:

  • Submit ACT scores (if you took the ACT within the last 3 years). If you do not believe your scores accurately reflect your ability or you do not have ACT scores, you can take our free Placement Test on campus. We will use these scores for course placement.

  • Complete the (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) FAFSA as soon as possible. This is the only way students will be considered for federal and state aid such as Pell grants, work study and/or student loans. It is also a common requirement for scholarships.

Transfer Students:

  • If your official transcripts haven’t been received by Schoolcraft College, bring a student copy of your transcripts to orientation (from all previous colleges/universities attended). To verify the receipt of your official transcripts, please contact Admission and Enrollment at 734-462-4426.

  • If you have completed less than 8 college credits and/or it’s been 5 years since you attended college please take our free Placement Test prior to Orientation. We will use these scores in combination with your college transcripts for course placement.

  • Complete the (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) FAFSA as soon as possible. This is the only way students will be considered for federal and state aid such as Pell grants, work study and/or student loans. It is also a common requirement for scholarships.
