Registration for winter courses at Mid Michigan College is available now and courses start Monday, January 8.
Mid’s courses are scheduled to take place on campus and online.
“Helping students find their passion, achieve their goals, and own their opportunities is always top-of-mind as we near the start of a new semester,” said Beth Binder, Director of Admissions at Mid. “We continue to expand the number of programs, credentials, and services available on campus and online so we can support students when and where it works for them.”
In addition to on-campus options, Mid offers courses and degrees that can be completed online in formats that provide the ultimate in flexibility for students who are working, caring for family members, and adjusting to the wide variety of challenges life can bring during a semester.
“While the winter semester might seem far away, we encourage new and continuing students to register early,” explained Binder. “This will ensure they are able to shape a schedule that works best for them, and there are other perks as well, like saving on your enrollment fee and having time to apply for various available resources.”
The Michigan Achievement Scholarship is a new resource available for high school graduates. Eligible students can receive up to$2,750 per year at Mid for up to three years.
“To determine eligibility, students just need to complete the FAFSA, simple as that,” noted Binder. “We hope to see many students take advantage of this opportunity as this will make enrolling at Mid even more affordable, and in some cases with little to no out-of-pocket expense.”
The College is also offering a mix of on-campus and online resources and support services to help students succeed. From one-on-one help registering for courses to remote academic support, access to loaner hotspot internet access devices, and mental health counseling, Mid is continuing to support student success through a variety of methods.
“Students should definitely consider utilizing the Michigan Reconnect scholarship program,” noted Binder. “The scholarship covers in-district tuition and some fees—a big savings for students!”
In order to be eligible for Michigan Reconnect, adults usually have to be 25 years of age or older, but for a limited time—now through the start of the Fall 2024 semester—students must be just 21 years of age or older, have a high school diploma or equivalent, been a Michigan resident for one year, submit the FAFSA, and have not completed a college degree.
Current or returning students should contact their Mid Mentor for assistance with academic planning and registration.
