Sex Offender Registry
In accordance to the Campus Sex Crimes Prevention Act of 2000, Northwestern Michigan College is providing a link to the Michigan State Police Sex Offender Registry. The act requires institutions of higher education to issue a statement advising the campus community where law enforcement information provided by a state concerning registered sexual offenders may be obtained. In Michigan, convicted sex offenders must register with the Sex Offender Registry.
The Michigan State Police are responsible for maintaining this registry. Follow the link below and find the Sex Offender Registry under the Services tab:

Northwestern Michigan College is required to issue a timely warning for crimes that have occurred and represent an ongoing threat. We will issue a timely warning for any crime committed on our campus that has been reported to Campus Security or local law enforcement and is considered by the college to represent a serious or continuing threat to students and employees.
The following is an example of a possible use for a Timely Warning:
