2022 year in review at NMC

TRAVERSE CITY — In 2022, NMC announced five new credentials, passed a milestone in adult learner enrollment and college scholarship dollars awarded, and prepared for two new scholarships that could make paying for college easier for hundreds of students.

  • New credentials included two new culinary certificates and a third, culinary-maritime, to start next year.
  • Two new degrees will also debut in 2023: the state’s first Wet Tech associate degree, and a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) to be offered on NMC’s campus in partnership with a four-year university to be announced in January.
  • Adult learner enrollment through the Michigan Reconnect scholarship reached 400. These students over 25 without a college degree had received $562,000 as of mid-October.
  • Institutional scholarship hit a record $1,334,817. The average award to 1,206 students was $1,107.
  • The high school class of 2023 will be eligible for Michigan Achievement, a state scholarship that could cover more than half of NMC’s annual in-district tuition. An estimated 200 local high school graduates could qualify, and NMC could award between $300,000–$400,000.
  • A new, $30 million state scholarship fund to train more police officers is coinciding with major changes to NMC’s Police Academy, setting up an enrollment- to- employment pipeline that will ultimately benefit community safety.

In addition to new credentials and scholarship funds, NMC news in 2022 included the following notable stories:
