Getting Started

University Center Welcome SignThe NMC University Center is a single location that hosts senior universities offering select undergraduate and graduate programs in the Traverse City area. Here's an easy checklist to get you started.

  • Explore your opportunities

    Review available programs by simply selecting the bachelor's, master's or doctoral degree buttons under the Programs & Courses menu above. You can also review what certificates, planned programs, and endorsements are available by selecting certificates or endorsements & planned programs.
  • Make a connection

    Contact the university offering the program of interest. Each university is staffed with representatives who can answer questions on their programs, academic advising, admissions process, tuition and fees, etc. Contact information is located on each academic program description and listed in our NMC University Center directory.
  • Start your journey

    Once you decide on an academic program and school, you can apply to become a student of that university. The NMC University Center is where you will attend class, where you have access to our open computer lab, where you can study, and where your hard work and dedication will further your education. The NMC University Center is your "home base" no matter which university you attend.
