North Central Michigan College's Full Profile
North Central Michigan College is an open-door community college based in Petoskey serving close to 3,000 students in northern Michigan. North Central offers 38 career certificate programs and 24 associate’s degree programs. North Central’s tuition rates remain lower than the rates charged by most other small community colleges in Michigan, and Emmet County residents pay the lowest rate, because the college receives more than one-third of its funding from property taxes paid by Emmet County residents.
Through its five University Center partnerships, students can take courses leading to certificates, bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Central Michigan University, Ferris State University, Lake Superior State University, Michigan State University and Spring Arbor University. Students can complete the first two or three years of their program for a bachelor’s degree through North Central. The remainder of the program can be obtained through courses offered through the University Center partners.
North Central’s Corporate and Community Education (CCE) offers workforce training, professional development seminars and personal interest workshops. In the 2013-2014 fiscal year, more than 2,300 individuals took advantage of the community education workshops.
The North Central Now! program is an opportunity for high school students to earn North Central credit through dual (classes taken at North Central campuses) and concurrent (college courses offered in the high school) enrollment. Both options offer students the opportunity to earn semester-based college credits that will appear on a North Central Michigan College transcript and may be transferred to any public university in our state.
Early College began in 2014 with a pilot program with Petoskey High School. It is open to sophomores and offers these students free North Central tuition and textbooks for three and one-half years and allows students to receive both their high school diploma and associate degree after their fifth year of high school. Students will complete their course work at their high school and at North Central’s Petoskey campus.
