NMC Earns "Military Friendly" Designation

Nov. 8, 2017

Northwestern Michigan College and North Central Michigan College in Petoskey have been named Military Friendly Schools by Victory Media. The 2018 Military Friendly Schools list honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans, and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus. The schools are measured on several variables, including academic policies, admissions and orientation, culture, financial aid, support and retention.

Both NMC and NCMC also earned the Michigan Veteran-Friendly School designation for the 2017-18 academic year. They are among the 70 schools in Michigan to receive this status. Both institutions work to provide opportunities for veterans transitioning into civilian life.
