Mid Michigan College is expanding access to educational opportunities in Huron and Tuscola counties.

“We’re excited to increase the number of courses, programs, and training opportunities available to the residents of Michigan’s thumb region,” noted Scott Mertes, Vice President of Community Outreach & Advancement at Mid. “Students are now able to launch their higher educations with dual enrollment or short-term training and complete associate degrees. From start to finish, the ability to begin and complete an affordable education is now possible in the thumb.”

For the Fall 2019 semester, Huron Intermediate School District (ISD) is offering Mid’s Medical Assistant associate degree program along with Phlebotomy and CDL-A Truck Driving Short-Term Training. Both Huron and Tuscola ISD’s will offer online and face-to-face courses, along with dual enrollment opportunities for high school students.

“Dual enrollment allows high school students to take college courses—giving them a jump start on their college careers and equipping them with skills that help them succeed as they continue their educations,” noted Mertes.

Parents who want to learn more about dual enrollment can attend a free informational meeting at the Tuscola ISD 6pm-7pm on Monday, May 6. In just one hour, parents and students can learn how dual enrollment works, how students benefit, and how to get started.

Registration for all fall semester offerings is currently open and complete information, including courses and schedules, can be found online.

“At Mid, we strongly believe in increasing access to educational opportunities that develop knowledge and ability within individuals and communities,” shared Mertes.

Mid’s main campuses are located in Harrison and Mt. Pleasant, with satellite locations in Alpena, Huron, Mecosta, Osceola, and Tuscola counties.
