Northwestern Michigan College Reviews
I'm currently finishing up my prerequisites for pre-nursing program. I've been accepted into the 2020 fall ADN program and I could not be more happy! NMC also helped me find a concurrent program through Davenport to help me receive my BSN during the summers while working toward my ADN during the fall and winter. NMC has been great for me, it's helped me financially, the area is close to home and familiar, the staff is wonderful and fun, they do a lot to help the students be their best and feel their best. There's so many options as to where you can study, hang out, receive academic help, etc. As of right now, NMC is everything I'd hoped it to be and wouldn't recommend changing anything.
Northwestern Michigan College is an amazing place. It truly feels like home! Everyone is so kind and accepting. They’re so many available resources for you. Also, never be afraid to ask for help, because everyone will go out of their way to make sure you understand what your doing!
Northwestern Michigan College is an excellent college to start your college career. I am 51 years old and just started in 2018, this is my first time attending college and I am glad I chose Northwestern. The Professors are amazing, always available, and more than willing to go the extra mile to make sure you understand what you need to do. The Academic Success coaches are always there to lend a helping hand. Everyone here is just wonderful, kind, and helpful. I love my college!
