APPPRENTICE STUDENTS will also need to complete the online admission application. Regulations determine the number of apprentices in any trade which is a negotiated item in labor contracts or is set by the Bureau of Apprenticeship and Training; it is not a decision of the College. Questions regarding approval for apprenticeship programs should be directed to the Internship Coordinator (231) 777-0418.

Any legal resident of Muskegon County, 60 years of age or older before the first day of the semester in which admission is sought, is eligible to receive a S.A.M. tuition waiver.  If you qualify, you may register for college credit  classes which are eligible for state reimbursement.  You may be degree or non-degree seeking.  The S.A.M. waiver does not cover registration fees or any special class fees which are charged in addition to, or in place of tuition charge, nor does it cover the cost of books, supplies, or other instructional materials not included in the tuition charge.  The S.A.M. waiver is not retroactive.  Presentation of proof of age and residency to the Student Welcome Center prior to registration will establish your  eligibility for the program.  S.A.M. students must meet the prerequisite requirements which may include placement testing.
