Mid Michigan College is expanding access to educational opportunities in Mecosta and Osceola counties with transfer-focused associate degrees and extensive online options.
“We’re excited to increase the number of courses, programs, and training opportunities available to the residents of Mecosta and Osceola counties,” noted Scott Mertes, Vice President of Community Outreach & Advancement at Mid.
The programs, pathways, and courses offered at the Mecosta-Osceola Intermediate School District are highly-transferable. As a participant in the Michigan Transfer Agreement (MTA), Mid offers a block of classes, equaling 30 credits, that fulfill the general education requirements at Michigan universities and are guaranteed to transfer to most Universities across the State.
Mid’s Liberal Studies and Business Studies Transfer Associate Degrees can be completed with a combination of face-to-face and online courses (or 100% online if desired) and allow students to transfer over 60 credits to their ideal four-year university program.
Mid’s Short-Term Training options allow students to gain employable skills in just 3 to 12 weeks, and are focused on industries with high employment growth such as truck driving and phlebotomy.
The Mecosta-Osceola Intermediate School District will also offer 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.
Registration for all fall semester offerings is currently open and complete information, including courses and schedules, can be found online.
Mid’s main campuses are located in Harrison and Mt. Pleasant, with satellite locations in Alpena, Huron, Mecosta, Osceola, and Tuscola counties.
