High School students can earn college credit through dual enrollment at North Central Michigan College-Gaylord or Kirtland Gaylord M-TEC.  High school advisor permission is required for a student to be dual enrolled in both High School and college classes each semester.

Complete MACRAO Transfer Agreements:

The MACRAO Transfer Agreements through Kirtland Gaylord M-TEC and North Central Michigan College allow for smooth transferability of courses among participating Michigan colleges and universities.

It stipulates that 30 semester hours of 100-level and above compatible general coursework will satisfy typical freshman and sophomore-level general education requirements for the bachelor’s degree at participating universities. A KCC or NCMC student who completes the 30 credit hours for the MACRAO Transfer Agreement and who seeks to transfer to another institution must request that Student Services stamp his/her transcript “MACRAO Agreement Satisfied.”  Check each school’s policies for further information.

General Education Course Work

Every college requires 100 and 200 level General Education courses to enhance the academic foundation for higher learning.  Gen Ed classes can include writing, speech,  social studies, math and humanities.  At the University Center Gaylord, both North Central Michigan College (NCMC) and Kirtland Gaylord-MTEC offer many general education classes during the day and also in the evening.

Students who attend college elsewhere can take summer classes at the University Center to transfer back to their ‘home’ college or university.  Each UC partner welcomes student inquiries about particular classes…….if there is enough interest in a specific class, they are happy to add it to their schedule.
