Off-Campus Programs & Academic Outreach

Courses offered at locations beyond Mid Michigan College's main campuses are another way that the College works to broaden access to a college education throughout the mid-Michigan region.

Dual/Concurrent Enrollment

Dual/Concurrent enrollment, taking college courses while still in high school, allows students to take Mid Michigan College courses on campus, online, or at their high school.

Concurrent Enrollment

Specifically, Concurrent Enrollment refers to a Mid Michigan College course that is taught by a high school teacher, who has followed the Mid employment processes, met the Mid adjunct instructor qualifications, and teaches at the high school location.

Early College

Early Colleges are partnerships between a college and high school or intermediate school district that allow high school students to graduate with both their high school diploma and an associate degree (or 60 transferable college credits). These programs receive State of Michigan designations, recognizing the Early College as a 5-year, state-funded entity.

Welcome! The overall goal of Mid Michigan College's Off-Campus efforts are to provide high school students with a high-quality learning experience and college-success skill building, within relevant courses that are integrated into the high school curriculum.

We strive to develop knowledge, skills, and abilities that will help high school students seamlessly transition into successful college students. Academic excellence and exceptional learning experiences continue to be our top priorities as we serve local students.

The information in this web area is meant to inform prospective students and their families, as well as support accreditation standards.

Best wishes and good luck with all of your academic endeavors!

Accreditation Badge


Mid recently received accreditation from the National Alliance of Concurrent Enrollment Partnerships (NACEP) for the courses the College offers at local high schools. NACEP works to ensure that college courses taught by high school teachers are as rigorous as courses offered on the sponsoring college campus. This accreditation ensures that Mid classes adhere to the highest standards so students experience a seamless transition to college.

Mid is the first public institution in Michigan to receive this recognition for excellence. Mid course offerings include disciplines such as Political Science, Math, and Biology. Courses are offered at local area high schools including Big Rapids, Farwell, Marlette, Shepherd, and Vassar, among others.
