I am a new student to the NMC campus and i think i made the right decision to work on an associates degree there. Firstly, it is cheap and there are many scholarships that helps me pay for college. Secondly, it is near home so that i do not have to pay for board. Next, the class sizes are not too large making it easier to interact with the students and professor. Finally, the people are friendly and are always willing to help.

Overall Rating

Northern Marianas College is one of the long standing college institutions here on our island. The college has made it possible for me to receive higher education despite my financial struggle. As a former international student, it was extremely difficult for me to receive any financial help to pay for my education, but the finance office of the college was considerate enough to create a payment plan with struggling students like myself to be able to make 3 payments that is much more affordable for me to pay at that time. Majority of its staff are very approachable. Even after office hours, the staff are willing to give extra help online or arrange meetings to accommodate students who need the extra help. The college also encouraged the students to express themselves and voice out opinions that would be helpful for other students. For prospective students, the bulletin boards are your best friend especially when it comes to books and other materials, like electronics, that may be of use during your academic career at the college. Students help other students make college life friendly and affordable.
