What is your favorite place on our campuses & why?

My favorite place on the Mt. Pleasant campus is my office. I love being able to look out the windows! Also, I have tried to make it very comfortable for myself and my visitors.

What is your favorite memory at Mid?

My favorite memory at Mid would have to be any time a student has a "Eureka!" moment - when they discover a passion for something, when they catch onto the best study method for them, when they experience the fulfillment of hard work when it pays off. I appreciate students sharing this moment with me. It's inspirational.

What is the best part about being a Laker?

The best part of being a Mid Michigan College Laker is providing an authentic college experience to students yet being able to foster a one-on-one relationship with them. Mid is not so big that we can't recognize students when we see them on campus. And we aren't so small that we can't provide all the benefits a bigger college has. We are just right!.

If you could have any one superpower, which would you choose & why?

My superpower would be time travel. I would enjoy being able to experience firsthand many of the time periods I've read about.

Which skill would you love to learn?

I would love to be fluent in Spanish. Me encantaria ser fluida en espanol. ["espanol" should have the wiggly accent over "n"] I've been taking classes, using flashcards, utilizing Babbel, journaling, and practicing!

If you had to choose your last meal, what would it be?

Fried chicken, corn on the cob, fried okra, my grandma's green beans, peach cobbler, and a Coca-Cola with lemon.

What is your favorite place on our campuses & why?

My favorite place on Harrison Campus is out doors. There are walking and biking trails for student and community use. Sitting in library by the large windows and watching the wildlife. It is very relaxing any time of the year. My favorite place on the Mt. Pleasant Campus is the Atrium. The space is open and has an abundance of sunlight. There are always students interacting – it is a great place to meet other people and study.

What is your favorite memory at Mid?

I have many favorite memories at Mid, but if I had to choose, the memory would be having a student come and get me from my desk to meet her parents. She was the first in her family to attend college, had finished her program, and was picking up her cap and gown for commencement. She introduced me to her parents as the person who assisted her with her education by keeping her from walking out the door her first day. Knowing that I helped her achieve her educational goals meant the world to me.

What is the best part about being a Laker?

The best part of being a Laker is the Mid community. I have enjoyed Mid as a student who graduated and as an employee. I appreciate being part of an organization that assists student in overcoming obstacles, making the most of their college experience, and achieving their goals.

What was your favorite toy as a kid?

I did not have toys, my siblings and I made memories together. We had fun playing in the sprinkler, with a blanket over the clothes line for a tent, making forts, spying on each other, going to the park, riding bikes, or sitting and talking to each other.

If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?

I would go on a motorcycle trip across the Mackinaw Bridge and the International Bridge through Canada, back down through Washington State and across the United States to Maine. Visiting our children who live in Indiana and Michigan. They did live all over the country, but most of the 10 moved home to Michigan.

What is your favorite family vacation?

My favorite family vacation was going camping. We loaded up all of the camping gear and took several additional trips for the bikes and canoes. In the past all six of our own children and at least that many more of their friends enjoyed many camping trips to Trout Lake in Gladwin.

What is your favorite place on our campuses & why?

My favorite place on campus is the 3rd floor hallway in the Center for Liberal Arts & Business in Mt. Pleasant because it is so open and has floor to ceiling windows which allows for an abundance of natural light. This area is a bright and peaceful place to relax or study on campus.

What is your favorite memory at Mid?

My favorite memories of Mid are of my time as an student. I remember studying on the popular brick window benches at the Harrison campus, working out in the fitness center, and eating lunch outside at Acorn Park. I was also a student employee and had the privilege of working alongside many amazing Mid staff who contributed to my success as both a student and a professional.

What is the best part about being a Laker?

For me, being a Laker means that I get to contribute every day to my local communities. Being a part of an institution that strives to better the communities it serves is a remarkable feeling.

At which store would you like to max-out your credit card?

I would without a doubt max- out my credit card at Around the Farm Antiques in Birch Run, MI. One of my favorite hobbies is antique shopping, specifically for architectural and storage pieces that I can display and upcycle for use in my home.

What are three things on your bucket list?

Volunteer at an exotic animal rescue in Africa, Explore the ancient ruins of Egypt and Road trip across America.

What is your favorite place on our campuses & why?

My favorite place on campus is the Math Lab. I know this sounds crazy; however, I taught math at Mid for 15 years, and this place holds a special place in my heart.

What is your favorite memory at Mid?

My favorite memories at Mid include faculty, staff, and students. Everyone is always smiling and happy to be part of the traditions at Mid. The students seem to engage with faculty and staff with a sense of accomplishment, and as a staff and faculty member, I experience this first hand each and every day.

What is the best part about being a Laker?

The best part of being a Laker is seeing the College expand to offer a wide variety of programs and pathways and the recent renovations of the Harrison campus. I am excited to see what the future holds for the Lakers.

What is the nerdiest thing you do in your spare time?

The nerdiest thing I do in my spare time is play video games. To be able to immerse yourself in a science fiction fantasy world and meet friends along the way, who wouldn't want to do that?

What was your favorite TV show when growing up?

Growing up, my favorite television show was SeaQuest DSV. I love the science fiction aspect, marine biology, and exploration. And who doesn't love the original shark hunter Roy Scheider from Jaws?

What is your favorite family vacation?

My favorite family vacation has to be our trip to Florida. It was my first time on vacation with my significant other and our child. To see my daughter, Addison's face light up, was a priceless moment!

What is your favorite place on our campuses & why?

I have not been on the Harrison campus enough to have a favorite place there but at the Mount Pleasant campus I really like the Library and Learning Services area. It is a great resource for the students and the set up is very nice.

What is your favorite memory at Mid?

My favorite memory at Mid is going to the National tournament with the women’s basketball team last season. The community showed tremendous support and that experience was really cool to be able to represent Mid Michigan College at the national level.

What is the best part about being a Laker?

Being a Laker is an experience like none other. The sense of togetherness in the community is unmatched in all areas. Mid is a great place to be and the people around here are so helpful and inviting. Mid is a small but close knit community and I feel at home when I am at Mid Michigan College.

If you could have any one superpower, which would you choose & why?

Invisibility because I would be able to go wherever I wanted without any issues.

What is your favorite sport to watch or play?


If you could visit anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?

What is your favorite place on our campuses & why?

My favorite place on campus is the area just outside the entrance to the Center for Student Services and the Doan building. I love that there is seating in this area and all the plants and shrubs. It is a relaxing little area to pass through on your way into the building and out at the end of the day.

What is your favorite memory at Mid?

My first week at Mid was a spirit week promoting our basketball teams. There was so much pride exhibited by staff and students at Mid, it made me feel much better about the major change I had just made in moving to the world of higher education.

What is the best part about being a Laker?

The best part of being a Laker is the sense of community you feel at Mid. I was a student at Mid following my Bachelor's degree and felt much more sense of community at Mid than I did at my Bachelor's institution. We are a small enough school that we get to know each other and build relationships. I know the students I work with. I know more than their name and program of study. I know what is going on in their personal lives and have the opportunity to see them in the halls and follow up.

If you could have any one superpower, which would you choose and why?

I would choose teleportation as my one superpower. I would never have to waste time traveling in the car again.

If you woke up tomorrow as an animal, what animal would you choose to be and why?

I choose to wake up as my Chocolate Lab, Rosco. He has the house to himself five days a week!

Frequently Asked Questions

First-time students to Mid are required to complete Orientation before meeting with their Mentor and registering for courses.

Please visit Orientation for more information and to sign up for a session.

We encourage you to meet with your Mid Mentor at least once each semester.

Once students have completed 3 credits at Mid, they may register for courses on their own through Self-Service.

Students on academic probation, having excessive credits without completing a degree, or those experiencing financial aid problems may be required to meet with a Mentor.

Once you have determined your Program or Pathway, you will want to look through our College Catalog for a full description of courses. You and your Mid Mentor will start this process during your appointment.

GPA is an acronym for Grade Point Average.

GPA is a snapshot of your academic performance. It is determined by dividing the sum of grade points by the number of credit hours. On a standard scale A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1, and F=0.

Your transcript will display two separate GPA's - a semester GPA and a cumulative GPA. Your semester GPA reflects an average for one semester of coursework. Your cumulative GPA reflects your average for your entire academic career at that institution.

You can view your transcript, GPA, and other relevant information online via Self-Service.

The quickest way to improve your GPA is to repeat courses with low grades (such as F or D). 

Visit our Financial Aid site for information about paying for college.

If you have experience or skills gained through non-traditional sources such as work or life experience, you may request that these skills be evaluated for credit.

File a Non-Traditional Credit Application to get started. If credit is granted, a $20 per credit hour fee will be charged at the time the non-traditional credit is accepted and recorded.

AP courses are typically classes offered through high schools that have academic rigor similar to college-level courses as determined by the College Board (the regulators of CLEP). At the end of the class, students have the option to pay a fee to take the AP test. If a student passes the test with a score of 3 or better and has verification sent to their school of choice, most schools (including Mid) will award the student credit for that class. However, a student doesn't need to complete an AP course before completing the AP test. This helps ensure that homeschooled students are eligible as well.

CLEP stands for College Level Examination Program. AP stands for Advanced Placement. Both programs are regulated by the College Board. If you feel that you have sufficient competency in an area to pass a college-level examination in that subject, you may schedule a CLEP exam at an approved testing center; the closest is CMU. If you pass with an acceptable score and have verification sent to Mid, we will award you credit for that subject.

Mid has Articulation Agreements with some high schools and technical centers around the area which allow you to earn college credit if you've completed the course with a satisfactory grade. Welding, Intro to Early Childhood Education, and Medical Terminology are just a few examples of classes that may have articulation options. Upon completing the class, fill out a Mid High School & Technical Center Articulation Application , supply the required documentation, and your request will be reviewed.

Mid does offer in-house competency examinations for some of our key, entry-level courses. If a course such as keyboarding is required for your degree, you can test for credit. There is a fee for this type of test. If the course isn't required for your degree, but is a prerequisite to a course that you need to complete for your degree, you can test out for competency. There is no fee for this type of test.

Contact Library & Learning Services (LLS) on either campus to schedule an exam.

Satisfactory Academic Progress, or SAP, is maintaining a GPA of 2.0 or higher and successfully completing at least 67% of the courses you attempt. If you do not demonstrate satisfactory academic progress toward graduation as determined by attempted credit hours and grade point average, you may be placed on academic probation. Any GPA of 1.99 or below will qualify you for probation or dismissal.

More details on these policies are outlined in the College Catalog. You'll need to complete the Academic Probation/Dismissal form each semester that you register while on probation. Be aware that financial aid probation is a separate topic.

If you'd like more information on financial aid probation, visit Financial Aid. If you have questions about SAP, contact your Mid Mentor.

You are expected to take the required courses prescribed by your program of study. However, every once in a while special circumstances do exist that necessitate a substitution. If you believe you have valid circumstances with a clear rationale for substitution, you should file a Waiver/Substitution form with the assistance of your faculty or program advisor.
