PSS seniors eye 3 NMC programs

THE newly offered business degree program at Northern Marianas College ranks at the top of the preferred courses of Public School System seniors, according to NMC admissions coordinator Lisa Rafael.

NMC started its admissions campaign to attract local student enrollees yesterday at the Marianas High School college fair.

Rafael did not mention any number, but she did say most students asked about the new business program they offer.

Rafael said nursing comes next among the most preferred courses by students while the bachelor’s degree program in education ranked third.

Rafaela said they will continue reaching out to other high schools in the Northern Marianas to provide students with information on what programs suit them and the financial assistance options that are available.

She said NMC does not compete with other universities in the U.S., but wants to encourage high school graduates on island to look at the college as their first option.
