About our partnership
Michigan State University and Muskegon Community College are working together to offer specialized training programs for careers in some of Michigan’s highest demand industries. Students benefit from dual enrollment at both institutions with most courses delivered in Muskegon, Michigan.
This partnership allows students to earn a certificate from the MSU Institute of Agricultural Technology (IAT) while working toward an associates degree from MCC. The partnership between the two institutions benefits those who seek employment in agriculture, landscaping, and the fruit and vegetable industry.
The Newaygo Promise can be used to offset the MSU tuition for students attending MSU programs at Muskegon Community College. Contact the IAT program coordinators at Muskegon Community College for more information.
