In support of Northern Marianas College’s commitment to the health and safety of its campus community, the College has announced that beginning in the Fall 2021 semester, the COVID-19 vaccination would be part of the health clearance requirements for students who are enrolled in face-to-face or in-person classes.

The vaccination requirement allows NMC to offer a fuller range of in-person campus experiences in the fall, including co-curricular activities and events. Additionally, vaccination remains the most effective way to protect those who are not able to receive vaccination (children under age 12 and those who are medically exempted) and to bring the COVID-19 pandemic to an end. Further, the vaccine requirement furthers the CNMI’s goal of reaching herd immunity against the COVID-19 virus.

Start Smart. Start at NMC!

The board policies and administrative procedures are divided into chapters and organized by subject area.


Board Policy (BP)

Board policy is the voice of the Board of Trustees and defines the general goals and acceptable practices for the operation of the Board of Regents. It implements federal and state laws and regulations. The Board of Regents, through policy, delegates authority to and through the President to administer the policies. The President and college employees are responsible to reasonably interpret Board policy as well as other relevant laws and regulations that govern the college.

Administrative Procedure (AP)

Administrative procedures implement Board policy, laws, and regulations and are approved through the College's participatory governance process. They address how the general goals of the College are achieved and define operations of the College. They include details of policy implementation, responsibility, accountability, and standards of practice.  Procedures do not require Board of Regents action.
