NMC A "Best For Vets" School
Nov. 12, 2015
Northwestern Michigan College was recently named the fifth best community college nationwide on Military Times "Best For Vets" 2016 list. The independent print and online newspaper used a 120-question survey to evaluate schools. Additionally, it reviewed data from the Veterans Affairs Department, the Defense Department and the Education Department for everything from veteran-related policies to average salaries after graduation. Approximately five percent of NMC students are veterans.
NMC has also been recognized and ranked as a military-friendly college by GI Jobs and Military Advanced Education for the last four years.
