NMC Intersession Term Admission Application Deadline on December 6

The Northern Marianas College will be offering academic courses during the Intersession Term in which courses will meet for approximately three weeks from December 19, 2012 to January 9, 2013.

The purpose of the Intersession Term is to help students achieve their educational goals; it is ideal for those who need one or two courses to graduate or for those who want to lighten their academic load during upcoming semesters.

The College will be accepting applications from new and returning students (those who did not take courses during the Fall 2012 semester) for the Intersession Term until December 6, 2012.

Note that supporting documents (i.e. transcripts from institutions previously attended, health evaluation form, and copy of a valid photo I.D.) must also be turned in before the day of registration. Application forms submitted after the deadline will be processed for the following semester, Spring 2013.

New and returning students are required to attend a student orientation in order to register. Two sessions are scheduled on December 17, 2012. If you are unable to attend either session listed in the calendar below, contact the Office of Student Activities and Leadership at 234-5498 ext. 1253.
