The Northern Marianas College will be hosting a free information session on Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2014, for individuals who are interested in furthering their education or advancing their professional careers.
The information session, which is open to all prospective students and interested members of the community, will be held from 5:30pm to 6:30pm in Room D-1 at the college’s As Terlaje campus.
College faculty, staff, and students from different degree programs and other educational programs at NMC, as well as Student Services representatives from counseling, financial aid, and admissions will be on hand to provide helpful information and answer questions.
The college will also be accepting admissions application for the spring 2014 semester at the information session. The deadline for submitting applications was originally on Dec. 20, but the college is making an exception for those who attend and submit their application at the info session.
Those who attend the information session will qualify to have their application fee and their placement test fees waived for NMC’s upcoming spring 2014 semester. This represents a savings of about $75.
NMC offers several degree programs, including a bachelor of science degree in education (emphasis on elementary education, early childhood education, special education, or rehabilitation and human services), associate degrees in business, business administration (emphasis on accounting, business management, or computer applications), liberal arts, nursing, natural resources management, criminal justice, and hospitality management. Moreover, it offers short-term certificate programs in different vocational, academic, and professional areas.
