About NMC University Center

NMC University Center logoSince 1995 the NMC University Center has been a unique partnership between Northwestern Michigan College and senior universities located throughout Michigan offering select bachelor degree-completion, graduate, doctorate, certificate and endorsement programs. Students attending the University Center can complete a four-year degree — or advanced degree — without leaving northwestern Michigan. In short, they could "start here and stay here" to fulfill their educational goals without being away from families, their jobs or their communities.

Our Mission

The mission of the Northwestern Michigan College University Center is to facilitate the delivery of high quality programs and course offerings beyond the associate degree level to northwest Michigan as deemed desirable by the citizens of the region.


NMC University Center is conveniently located just north of South Airport and Cass Street intersection. More »

My NMC Story

“We send people to NMC to get additional training. Everybody there is doing great work every day, providing our community with educated, innovative individuals.... As people get older, and have transitions in their life, it′s important to have a community college to go back to, get skill sets, be adaptable ... to provide that stepping stone.”
