TRAVERSE CITY — Registration is now open for College Edge, a free program NMC is hosting this summer to help college students prepare for their fall semester.

College Edge is a four-week program to help prepare students to succeed before they start or continue college at NMC this fall. Interested students can register for one of two options online:

  • Adult College Edge (English and math for students 21+) Two sessions offered, June 3-28 or July 8-Aug. 2. Breakfast and lunch included.
  • Math Edge (Math only for students 18+ pursuing STEM programs ) One session available, July 8-Aug. 2. Lunch included.

Both groups will use a hybrid schedule. Students will attend on-campus Tuesday and Thursday mornings and complete other coursework online at their own pace. For completing the program, students will earn a $500 scholarship toward NMC’s fall semester. Class supplies and gas cards for transportation to campus are also included.

College Edge hosted by NMC debuted in 2023. It is part of the investment the state of Michigan is making in its student-age population. State scholarships available now include Michigan Achievement for the high school class of 2024, and Michigan Reconnect for adults 21 and older who don’t already have a degree. Achievement offers $2,750, or half the cost of NMC’s full-time, in-district tuition. Reconnect makes tuition free to in-district students (Grand Traverse County residents.)

Release date: May 22, 2024
