I am a high school student that is duel enrolled at NMC. I love all the help we received at NMC when my Mom and I went for orientation. Its great to be able to do my class through the Internet while in high school and next fall as a high school senior I plan on taking at least 2 classes at NMC.

Northwestern Michigan College is an excellent community college. They have excellent Maritime, Nursing, Culinary, and Engineering Technology programs. Small class sizes and top notch professors make this one of the best two-year colleges.
