Registration for winter semester courses at Mid Michigan College is going on through the start of the semester on January 11. Beginning in early January, student services will be available until 6pm on most days to help students get registered and apply for financial aid.
The newest statewide restrictions from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services allow for in-person classes on college campuses. Mid’s courses are scheduled to take place on-campus and remotely through a variety of delivery methods utilizing the latest technologies.
“The health and safety of our campus community is our top concern as we plan for the upcoming semester,” said Tim Hood, President of Mid Michigan College. “We continue to safely welcome students, staff, and visitors to campus with social distancing and appropriate safety precautions in place.”
The College’s Study Safe, Stay Healthy Plan includes a variety of measures based on scientific and expert recommendations to limit exposure and maintain a clean environment. The College is also adjusting its plan as needed in response to recommendations from governmental agencies and health professionals.
“We are continuing to take thorough precautions to reduce risk,” noted Hood. “We also recognize that not everyone is ready to return to campus and are being sensitive to those concerns as well.”
The College is offering a wide-array of courses, programs, pathways, and credentials that can be completed mostly online. New technologies and delivery methods provide students with a flexible, engaging, dynamic learning experience using the latest technologies and resources.
“Mid’s online students connect actively with our experienced instructors and their classmates,” explained Marisa Wier, Associate Dean of Online and Distance Learning at Mid . “These flexible course delivery options were designed to meet the needs of our students to help them achieve their goals.”
These online programs and pathways include a number of courses that can be taken in a variety of formats that provide the ultimate in flexibility for students who are working, caring for family members, and adjusting to pandemic-related challenges and restrictions.
“Mid’s goal was to reduce attendance barriers, and improve the flexibility of a Mid education for students. We see our students for the complete individuals they are—with family, friends, responsibilities, and challenges,” noted Wier.
The College’s Study Safe, Stay Healthy plan also includes a mix of on-campus and online resources and academic support services to help students succeed. From one-on-one help registering for courses to remote academic support, and access to loaner hotspot devices, and no-cost mental health counseling, Mid is continuing to support student success through a variety of methods.
The College has also extended its deadline to drop courses with a full refund so students can try out courses without any risk. Once courses start on January 11, students have two weeks to make sure that their courses work for them, and students can drop their courses at any point during that time for a full refund.
