Higher education in the heart of Northern Michigan
The farther north you go, the further your education can take you. With modern classrooms and labs on an inspiring, safe and rural campus, Kirtland offers high-tech learning and the peace of mind that comes with being away from the crowds and connected to nature.
Our brand new high-tech building is surrounded by pristine scenic landscapes and fresh water—where the people are outnumbered by outdoor pursuits like hunting, fishing, boating, skiing and snowmobiling.
From winter sports to summer leisure activities, Michigan’s northern lower peninsula offers independence and a safe retreat, while Kirtland’s campus remains on the cutting-edge of online learning and hands-on training for modern careers.
With programs like Wood Science Technology and Health Sciences, we’re uniquely situated to provide relevant education that leads to high-skill careers in the forestry industry, local healthcare facilities, and so much more.
In addition, all of our degree and certificate programs are designed to place graduates in inspiring careers, and our online and transfer classes all go with you when you leave Northern Michigan — even though we have a feeling you’ll stay.
Trade in a dorm room for a cabin in the woods, and earn your certificate, degree or transfer credits in a clean and naturally distanced environment.
Next time you come ‘up north’ for the weekend, take the 4 Mile Road exit off I-75 and see how education looks in the woods. Here are directions to the Kirtland Grayling campus.
