    College is expensive. Everyone knows that. What everyone doesn't know is that they can get a great, quality, and unique educational experience for much, much less at NMC. The teachers there are not your run-of-the-mill average instructors, they are knowledgeable and helpful. The ability to get this kind of education at a much more affordable price is one of the things that make NMC such a great school.

    The transfer-ability of the courses at this college seems to vary, but I have seen mostly positive results. Great way to save money to transfer to complete a bachelors.

    Definitely a good deal for the money if you get the right professors. Especially if you're moving to Traverse City from a place like Flint like I did to go to school there.
