High schools, depending upon MEAP scores and other considerations, may pay a portion of the tuition costs. Students are advised to see their high school counselors for details. Dual-Enrollment is on a semester-by-semester basis. A new Dual-Enrollment application must be submitted each semester of attendance at NMC as a high school student. Upon graduation from high school, students must submit a “regular” NMC application and an official high school transcript. • COMPASS Placement Test information: (231) 995-2134 • Request Dual-Enrollment application: (231) 995-1054 or see your high school counselor. • ACT test scores: Send to NMC Admissions Office.

To register, you will need to have already passed the prerequisite course, be enrolled in the prerequisite course (in-progress), have transferred in the direct equivalent course, or have an appropriate test score on the COMPASS placement test (for English and math courses).

When registering or adding on the web, complete your transactions and then contact the Records Office at (231) 995-1049 and let them know about the repeat. The online system does not have an option to indicate repeats. Most courses at NMC may be repeated a maximum of two times. For Financial Aid purposes, classes that are repeated may not be counted in total number of credits taken for the semester if the prior class can be counted toward graduation.

P O T IVE F

... reasons to complete your degree at NMC:

1 3 You’ve started… we’ll help you finish. Find out more: www.nmc.edu/complete

5

The more you learn, the more you earn. • High school gradutes will earn $1.3 million in a lifetime • An associate’s degree holder will earn $1.7 million • Transfer from NMC and go on to earn a bachelor’s degree and you’ll earn $2.3 million

2

Community college students who transfer to a four-year school will, on average, post a higher GPA at that school than their university classmates who started there

Almost half of all enrolled college students (8 million) are attending community colleges. Community colleges aren’t just a viable form of education; they’re a vital form of education.

4

Since 1985, more than half of all community college graduates are women. They are also the fastest growing segment of the workforce. Coincidence?

The average age of an NMC student is twenty-eight. Community colleges are a fit for students of any age.

Plan ahead to graduate Students completing their degree or certificate at the end of the fall semester should submit an Application for a Degree or Certificate during the current spring or summer 2012 semester. Applications are available at www.nmc.edu/records (click Graduation) or in the Records and Registration Office.
