Parent Information

Dear Parents,

I usually have the pleasure of talking with you and your students about all the positive things that are happening at Mid. Together we celebrate Laker victories, induction into Phi Theta Kappa, and the opening of our new campus facilities and programs.

However, sometimes the news is troubling and involves allegations of misconduct by a member of our community. Such incidents are distressing for all of us. As a mom, I know that the safety and security of our daughters and sons is paramount.

You may be aware of the allegations of misconduct by a Mid softball coach. An incident of this kind is distressing for everyone. I want to assure you that from the moment we were made aware of such situations, College administrators have taken steps to investigate and to protect our students. We follow our Title IX Policies in order to be fair to all concerned. While we cannot comment on an open investigation, please know that we have campus security in place and that we fully cooperate with law enforcement. In matters of alleged sexual misconduct, we adhere closely to the rules and regulations set forth by Title IX of the Education Amendment Act of 1972, which requires confidentiality during investigations.

Nearly 5,000 people study and work at Mid. If there are concerns, we have a strong reporting system, Mid Cares, in place. If your student has a concern that should be brought to our attention, please encourage them to reach out. In addition, Amy Goethe, our Student Wellness Coordinator at agoethe@midmich.edu, is available to talk with students one-to-one.

At Mid, we hold ourselves to high standards -- individually and for our community. We strive to treat each other with respect and kindness. Our faculty and staff are dedicated to the success of our students.

As always, my door is always open to you. I welcome your thoughts about how we can strengthen our academic community.

I look forward to seeing you soon.

Christine M. Hammond, Ph.D.

LAKER PARENTS, WELCOME!

Whether you have a student considering Mid Michigan College or who is already attending, we want to congratulate your efforts. A college education opens doors, not only for the graduate, but for the communities that they go on to serve in their respective careers.

It takes support to make the choice to continue an education. Mid applauds parents and caregivers who have supported students toward reaching higher and achieving more. Thank you.

CLOSE TO HOME. FAR FROM ORDINARY.

Our faculty care, and our average class size is 18. We understand how to teach and how to listen to our students--how to serve and how to deliver an exceptional education. That's why we really do believe that our students get more from their time at Mid.

Because our degrees and courses transfer to colleges and universities across the state and nation, we can accommodate all goals. Whether you live nearby and have a student who could take a course or two over the summer, or you have a future doctor who wants to save on general education courses' costs, or you have a future plastics technician who will enter the workforce in two years, Mid has something valuable to offer.

Talk to us. Ask questions. We want to help you figure out what makes sense for your family as you consider college paths.

Preparing your student for college.

Mid Michigan College has two Bookstores, one at each campus. A wide variety of campus clothing, supplies and gift items can be purchased in addition to course materials. An online Bookstore is also available for students who prefer to have their orders shipped.

Degrees Pay. Community Colleges Save.

65% of all U.S. jobs will require training beyond high school by the 2020. That's an incredible shift from only a few years ago.

$120 / Week**

is the median additional earnings of an associate degree holder vs someone with no college experience.

That means that these additional earnings will pay for an associate degree in about two years.

At Mid, we offer a number of career-track associate degrees, which allow students to enter the workforce in only two years time. Beyond these, we offer a number of training credentials and certificates in which students can gain entry-level jobs in a year or less.

$460 / Week**

is the median additional earnings of a bachelor degree holder vs someone with no college experience.

Over 50% of our students start at Mid with intentions of getting a bachelor degree. That's why Mid participates in the Michigan Transfer Agreement and creates specialized transfer degree paths that feed directly into bachelor degree programs that our students intend to enter.

We are proud to have hundreds of our students attending universities across the state and nation. We know that they will save between $10,000-$50,000+ on those degrees because they started at Mid. And we know that they didn't sacrifice the quality of their education simply because they improved the quality of their family's finances.

It adds up--

$250,000

in additional earnings for an associate degree over a 40-year career

$954,720

in additional earnings for an associate degree over a 40-year career
