NMC transfer guide

To: Northern Michigan University - Main Campus

Program: Elementary Education

Satisfactory completion of the elementary education curriculum qualifies a student for a Michigan Elementary Provisional Certificate which is valid for teaching all grades K-5 and major/minor fields in grades 6,7,8.

NMU students can select one teaching major (Integrated Science, Language Arts, Mathematics, or Social Studies) or two teaching minors (English, French, Geography, German, History, Integrated Science, Language Arts, Mathematics, Physical Education, Reading, Social Studies, or Spanish).

ADMISSION CRITERIA

Students should refer to the Teacher Selection and Retention Standards in the NMUI Bulletin for complete details regarding admissions requirements, selection criteria, and retention standards for NMU's School of Education.

BASIC REQUIREMENTS

Completion of the courses on this guide will NOT fulfill the MACRAO agreement as GEO 105/L (listed in the science/math section) is not considered a science course at NMC. If you wish to receive a degree from NMC, please talk with an NMC academic advisor.

If you do complete the MACRAO agreement, the following statement applies: NMU is a participating member of the MACRAO Transfer Agreement. Students transferring directly from NMC with the MACRAO stamp will have fulfilled divisions 1-4 of the Liberal Studies program at NMU. If you attend another college (2 yr. or 4 yr.) before attending NMC - or before you receive the MACRAO stamp - the MACRAO agreement will not apply to your NMU transfer. For more information on the MACRAO stamp, please contact a counselor at NMC or NMU.
