Mid Michigan College is dedicated to providing educational opportunities throughout Michigan communities—including opportunities for students attending high school. These off-campus courses give students the opportunity to earn college-level credit in courses that easily transfer to universities. Mid offers courses at local area high schools including Beaverton, Farwell, and Shepherd among others.

Recently, Mid began providing several college courses at Flex Tech High School in Shepherd. Fall 2018 saw the launch of this partnership with a single graphic design course offered to high school students.

“Beginning in the Winter 2019 semester Mid is now offering graphic design, advanced graphic design, and an introduction to drawing course with plans to expand and offer computer aided drafting and design courses in the future,” shared Rick Smith, Associate Dean of Off Campus Instruction at Mid Michigan College.

Mid also plans to offer corrections officer courses at St. Louis High School beginning in the Fall of 2019.

“We are very excited to enter into this partnership with Mid Michigan College. Giving our students the opportunity to walk out of high school with all the credentials to be a corrections officer is a fantastic opportunity for not only our students, but also our community,” shared Kristi Teall, Superintendent of St. Louis Public Schools.

Mid recently received accreditation from the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP) for the courses the College offers at local high schools. NACEP works to ensure that college courses taught by high school teachers are as rigorous as courses offered on college campuses.

Mid is the first public institution in Michigan to receive this recognition for excellence.
