All students start in Pre degrees; for example, if you want to be a Nurse your starting degree is Liberal Arts with a Minor in Pre-Nursing.  When you meet the entrance requirements and are awarded a seat in the program, then you receive the Nursing major.


Our programs have competitive entry.  Competitive entry requires extra steps to be accomplished to be awarded a seat in the degree program and start classes in an upcoming cohort.  To see our Entrance criteria for each of the programs on a computer look to the left and choose the program of interest, on a phone/tablet touch the three lines at the top and select the program of interest.


Cohorts are groups of students that meet entrance criteria and start as a group following a sequence of courses to finish a degree.  An example of a cohort: the Associate Degree in Nursing, students start in the Fall semester, at Escanaba Campus, with 32 fellow students and follow a defined course sequence for five consecutive Fall and Winter semesters.
