Tuition & Financial Aid:
I've received the pell grant every year I've gone, and last fall I had to pay $5 from my pocket to pay for class along with paying for books. It's not too bad going through the process with the fafsa, the worst part is keeping up with the deadlines, especially around tax time. And as far as tuition goes, I know it's pretty expensive if you pay for college yourself, and that it seems to raise every year. Which is why I'd recommend trying to get a scholarship or another form of financial aid.

Plenty of resources on campus.
College Sophomore 2013-10-17T17:18:16Z
I love my program, I'm just getting started this year so I'm taking pretty basic classes such as: math, english, and a couple elective classes.

I'm not actually currently or planning to take any online courses with NCMC, but from what I have heard, the online curriculum is fairly efficient and engaging. Mostly the college is comprised of on-campus interaction and classes. I think there are only 3 online classes offered.
I would say that is sufficient, because with the performing arts (which this college is 100% centered around), you basically have to be present and practicing with others. So the lack of options of online classes is not disappointing at all, but simply a product of the type of school we are.

The Young Americans Group (of NCMC and California campus) are an incredibly diverse group of people. We come from over half of the US states, and from about a dozen international regions. Sexual orientations are very broad and accepted completely by all. Differences in size, shape, color and orientation are all very diverse and not discriminated, but celebrated and that is a very beautiful thing.
Beside that, most students are fairly personable and outgoing, but a few tend to be very self centered and goal oriented. If it doesn't have to do with them getting better at what their doing in the field of dance or singing, etc. They basically don't care, but this is a small minority of snobbish performers ("divas" as we call them in the industry). Other than that, the group of 105 New Kids is practically one big happy family. We always work together on rehearsals, songs, and classwork.

My teachers and directors are very kind and thoughtful. On top of having a vast knowledge in each of their respective fields, they take a lot of time communicating with students one on one to make sure we're all up to par on our classwork and skill sets, and also just how we're doing with our personal lives as well.
All of my professors are very involved with the wellbeing of every student. The class work and homework is often very simple, but the topics covered are incredibly engaging, and I have received endless inspirational insights from lectures and practices.

After my first few months at the California campus affiliated with NCMC, I have had a powerful experience. I can almost compare it to a performing arts boot camp. The various dance and choral classes have been incredible in helping my development as a musician and performer as well as boost my confidence in front of friends and audiences.
I have also taken a few other classes like business math and psychology which have really helped to further my understanding of every day principles.
I think that with the training here I will easily become skilled enough to have great potential in the music industry as a singer, musician and potentially a dancer.

NCMC has several computer labs that students can take advantage of at any time. Very rarely do you experience any downtime or lag in the speed of their wireless connection. I would say that you might only want your own computer if you are planning on taking on line courses as you may not want to be able to attend these types of courses from home, especially in the winter when the roads can be pretty bad due to the amount of snow fall.

NCMC is rated as having one of the very best Nursing programs around. At the end of 2012 they built a brand new science building with the very best equipment available. Along with Nursing they have many other courses available and are in partnership with many Michigan schools making it possible to get a degree without having to travel far. This also makes it a lot more affordable for the average person to be able to get a college degree without going broke or beginning your career deeply in debt. I highly recommend North Central Michigan College!

My professors are great, they anwser all my questions.Never get mad at how many or how often i ask questions. They always explain the curriculm until everyone understands. Class registration is a breeze to set up by your self or you can call,stop in what ever works for you.
College Sophomore 2013-08-12T14:25:00Z
It is great. They redid our blackboard system to be more set up like Facebook, so you can chat about what happen in class or whats going to happen.
College Sophomore 2013-08-12T14:23:35Z
It has anything you could want. Easy to get to and find.
College Sophomore 2013-08-12T14:22:46Z
Its on the smaller side, so it so easy to find things to do or places to go. Easy to get involed.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
North Central Michigan College goes above and beyoung to make sure you apply for aid. Once you apply you go in and someone explain the whole process to you. When to apply payment, choosing your classes, when your should expect refund(if any). I will be getting back about 50 dollars in November. So that does not leave me with alot. So a scholorship would be great so i can get a laptop and note books, so i can be home more with my kids.

School offered wifi throughout campus. It was helpful and easy to login and majority of the time it was reliable to work. Most teachers did not care to have a personal computer in the classroom.
College Senior 2013-07-29T21:31:56Z
This school offers a lot of different hours for classes. It is a flexible school, but do wish they offered more classes for the semesters. Transferring credits from the military was easy.
College Senior 2013-07-29T21:30:03Z
I'm focusing on engineering. Some classes were not expected like taking a logic class or speech. I don't know how those classes are going to make me successful for engineering. I think it's a waste of time, but majority of courses are on track. I have to take a lot of math classes. I am also enrolled in chemistry and earth science courses as well as intro to drafting.
College Senior 2013-07-29T21:26:39Z
Most teachers are involved with their students, some teachers lack students success. They offer resources for succession like a library, writing center, tutors, etc. Staff are friendly and willing to help. Majority of students are locals so see a lot of people you recognize. Overall, I think this school is great and has good variety of class subjects to take.
College Senior 2013-07-10T01:16:53Z
I recently took a few online courses and surprisingly loved them. I really enjoyed doing the homework on my own time and being able to learn how to mange my time and work load. Online courses aren't for everyone, but I would highly recommend them to individuals who aren't able to step foot into a classroom due to children, work, etc.
College Senior 2013-07-10T01:12:59Z
The campus is rather small, but they have an excellent athletic center that's open to students and the public. Although their library is rather tiny, and seems a little outdated.
College Senior 2013-07-10T01:07:23Z
A few unique things about this school is that it's located by beautiful Lake Michigan. Although the school is tiny, and not a lot of classes are offered at this college, Petoskey is a beautiful city many tourists come to visit. I chose to give NCMC a B- due to the fact that they don't always offer classes at a range of different times and they also cancel classes frequently due to not enough students enrolling. Although this is a great community college that offers classes to students at an affordable cost.

i have only been here for a year so i am not really sure
College Senior 2013-05-16T02:20:29Z
few student clubs because of low funding, nothing to do in the dorms/ around town. classes are only offered at certain times/ on certain semesters making them hard to arrange if you have a tight schedule. limited number of classes, but at least all the teachers are great and dedicated.
