Why collegE?

No matter what challenges you face, you can count on your education and degree to build a brighter future. By making the choice to complete a degree, credential, or certification at Mid, you'll be building skills, gaining self-confidence, connecting to a network of support, reaching for better opportunities, and experiencing economic benefits.

Increase your annual earnings by completing an associate degree.

Experience economic benefits. Associate degree holders are employed at a higher rate than those that don't have a degree according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. By completing a degree, you're also likely to see an increase in wages. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that associate degree holders can earn, on average, $60 more each week than those who have some college, but no degree. That's an extra $3,120 each year!*

Reach for better opportunities. If you’re wondering “what might have been,” why not wonder instead “what might be?” Associate degrees and credentials pay off—often resulting in higher pay, higher job security, and higher satisfaction with the way you spend 40 hours a week.

Gain self-confidence. Completing a degree takes initiative, effort, and determination, and as you cross the Commencement stage you'll be confident you can pursue any opportunities that come your way. It's proven! Studies have shown that a greater sense of confidence is tied to greater career advancement. According to a study from the University of Melbourne [Science Daily], there's a strong correlation between confidence and success.

Connect to a support system. By returning to college and completing your degree you'll connect with instructors, advisors, college leaders, and other students just like you. And with Mid's small class sizes, peers and mentors are close at hand. These connections become a network of support that can help you stay on track to graduate, cope with life's many stresses, and launch your bolder, brighter, better future.

Build your skills. Increase meaningful skills that employers are looking for in over 50 programs and pathways. From a broad based understanding of the world to technical knowledge, a Mid education is an employable education. You may be wondering how employers will know what skills you've mastered by completing your degree at Mid. To highlight these skills, Mid has partnered with organizations representing a wide-range of career-fields to award industry-recognized skill certifications. As a result of completing your degree at Mid, you'll have a credential or degree you can rely on and proof that you've mastered skills employers count on.

79% of Mid students receive some type of financial aid.

On a tight budget? Tuition at Mid is lower than many community colleges in the State, and offers significant savings over four-year colleges and universities. From federal and state financial aid to grants and scholarships, you have the opportunity to receive money to lessen the cost of your education. Take the first step by completing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®). The FAFSA for the upcoming fall semester is available annually on October 1, and you'll want to complete a FAFSA well in advance as receiving your aid package can take a couple of weeks. For more information on financial aid visit midmich.edu/finaid Mid also offers convenient payment plan options and the ability to work on campus.

Facing difficult challenges? Are you struggling with finding a job, transportation, health concerns, or a reliable supply of food? Mid can help! We offer many support for success services including the Campus Cupboard food pantry, Career Center, and student wellness events. If the College can't help you find a solution, we have established relationships to community resources and can connect you to the appropriate organization. Learn more about Student Wellness at Mid.
