Mid Michigan Community College, located in Harrison, Michigan, was founded in 1965 to provide educational opportunities to residents in the region. Over the years the school has grown in size and enrollment, requiring the addition of a second and thirds campus. These campuses have expanded the school's service area and provide varying programs of study. Currently MMCC serves 5000 students annually. The school is dedicated to providing the best possible education and services possible, and does so through continued review of programs, facilities and services to anticipate current and future needs and work toward meeting them.
Mid Michigan Community College offers various programs of study that result in either career development or academic transfer opportunities. Career training programs provide development and education in a given field, assisting students in acquiring the skills necessary for entering the workforce as qualified professionals. These programs utilize traditional classroom education and practical courses to allow students the means to perfect methods and techniques used within their field. This is done through controlled environments that simulate real world settings. Programs take between one and two years to complete, resulting in a certificate or associate degree that demonstrates competency and assists in the pursuit of entry level employment.
Academic transfer is accomplished through the completion of the first two years of a four year education, after which the student will apply to a college or university in order to continue one's education. Once accepted the student will complete all two years of their education at the new school and earn their bachelor's degree. Transfer to a public institution in Michigan is made easier through transfer agreements in place, though students may apply to private and out of state institutions which will have more stringent and varying admissions requirements.
