Dual Enrollment Checklist

  • step 1: Meet with your high school counselor about taking classes at NMC

    Determine if there are classes at NMC that will help you fulfill your high school graduation requirements. Remember that by being dual enrolled, you are starting college and all grades will appear on your college record
  • STEP 2: Qualify for classes at NMC by submitting ACT or AP scores or taking the COMPASS placement test at NMC

    Call our Student Success Center at (231) 995-2134 to schedule your COMPASS placement test. Be sure to tell our staff you are taking the COMPASS for dual enrollment. If you have taken AP tests, check our website to see what college credit you may be eligible for. NMC Admissions will send you an eligibility letter once your scores have been approved. Qualifying ACT scores are listed on this page.
  • STEP 3: Complete the Dual Enrollment application form with your high school counselor

    This form requires you to select the class(es) you would like to take at NMC as well as signatures from your parents and high school principal. You will also be responsible for paying the $20 application fee to NMC Admissions. Once your completed application has been submitted, wait for your acceptance letter in the mail!
  • STEP 4: Register for and attend an orientation session

    Your application must be submitted one week prior to attending orientation. Register for your orientation session online. During orientation you will meet with an NMC academic advisor to schedule your approved class(es). Call our Admissions Office with any questions at 855.FIND NMC

  • STEP 6: Buy books and begin attending classes.

    Our Bookstore is located in West Hall (#9 on the campus map). You can compare bookstore prices to online prices through our website. Make sure you know when your classes begin at NMC. Typically our fall semester begins in August and our spring semester in January.Attend class!
  • STEP 7: Attend your classes regularly and meet with your high school counselor before you decide to withdraw from an NMC

    It is very important that, after talking with your counselor, you visit your online NMC Self-Service account in the Registration Menu to drop your class.  This is the student's responsibility.  Be sure you drop your class before the 100% refund date listed on your schedule.  Dates to drop with refund vary based by course and are listed on your student schedule in Self-Service.  Visit the NMC Records and Registration Office (231-995-1049) if you have a HOLD on your account that prevents you from dropping your class.  Download a copy of this procedure here.
