Home for the Summer? Be Our Guest!

With summer just around the corner, you’re probably thinking about how you’ll spend your time during some of the finest days northern Michigan has to offer.  If you or your student is attending a four-year college or university, the sun-filled days of summer may find you working, travelling, or just passing time until the fall semester begins.  This Week @ Kirtland, you’re invited to be our guest – a Guest Student, as a matter of fact.

Registration for Kirtland’s summer and fall semesters is now open.  As a college student home for the summer, if you are looking for a class or two to help you stay on track – or even get ahead of the game – take time to check out what Kirtland has to offer.  At our locations in Roscommon, West Branch, Gaylord and completely online, we have the math, psychology, sociology, history, economics and various science classes you need to pick up a few extra credits this summer.  

Coming home for the summer is great, and the convenience, flexibility and affordability Kirtland provides is a perfect combination for Guest Students.  Plus, Kirtland’s in-district tuition rate is one-third the cost of the four-year schools – that’s a huge savings.  And don’t worry, Guest Student credits transfer to your school!  Stay on track AND save money?  A win-win situation for sure!

But wait…there’s another kind of guest we love at Kirtland!  Did you know high school students can earn college credit through dual enrollment?  If you’re interested in finding out how you can earn college credit while still in high school, meet with your school counselor to get your dual enrollment form completed.  Another important thing to know – many high schools may pay for some or all of the college tuition costs.  Plus, applying for dual enrollment admission at Kirtland is FREE!  Check out to learn all about dual enrollment!
