Thousands more have attended and met their educational goals by transferring to other schools or seeking employment.

Every year alumni return to NMC to update skills, change careers or enjoy the cultural enrichment opportunities we provide.

Perhaps you are an alumnus and don't know it!

Graduation from NMC is not a requirement to be considered an alumnus!

There are no membership dues or fees to be involved as an alumnus. We welcome your participation in a number of ways: by staying in touch; sharing current news with others; attending campus events; supporting the college; and joining in local alumni activities.

Alumni Ambassadors celebrate new alumni at spring commencement, and connect with fellow alumni at the NMC BBQ Alumni Tent and other special alumni events.
