KALAMAZOO--Tuition remission programs offered by two of Western Michigan University's regional locations continue to make earning a bachelor's degree a little more affordable for citizens living along the southern Lake Michigan shoreline.
The programs allow current and previous transfer students from Lake Michigan College and Muskegon Community College to take one WMU course at a savings by paying only those community colleges' tuition rates for the course. Participants may apply the lower rates to any course taken during their regional-location studies.
Details about the tuition remission are available at wmich.edu/southwest/advantage for the WMU-Southwest Advantage program offered at the University's regional location in Benton Harbor, Mich., and at wmich.edu/muskegon/advantage for WMU-Muskegon Advantage program offered at the University's regional location in Muskegon, Mich.
LMC transfer students may participate by enrolling at WMU-Southwest while MCC transfer students may participate by enrolling at WMU-Muskegon. Current community-college students will be eligible for the tuition remission after they have earned 40 or more credits at MCC or LMC and been accepted for enrollment by WMU.
The WMU-Southwest Advantage is being expanded to include courses leading to the new academic program in nursing being offered at that regional location starting this fall. The new offering is for registered nurses who want to earn a Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
WMU-Southwest also offers its advantage program for courses leading to a Bachelor of Business Administration in Management and Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. At WMU-Muskegon, the advantage program is available for courses leading to a Bachelor of Science in Recreation and Bachelor of Science in Engineering (Manufacturing).
