Transfer to Finish My Bachelor’s Degree
At Northwestern Michigan College, we make it easy for you to pursue a “2+2” degree program where you complete the first half (typically around two years) of your degree at our community college and then transfer to a four-year college or university to finish your bachelor’s degree. Since the first two years of a college education are typically spent taking general courses, you will have a good opportunity to strengthen your college grade point average (GPA) and to take advantage of our lower costs and friendly environment before you transfer.
Many students studying at NMC have plans to complete a bachelor’s degree after they finish an associate degree on our campus. NMC has dedicated academic advisors who can help you choose the classes at NMC that will help you transfer to another program to complete your bachelor’s degree.
