 Tell Me About The North Campus | Top
Located in northern Miami-Dade County on a 245-acre site, this beautifully landscaped campus was the College’s first major campus, built in 1960. Its main academic buildings surround a serene lake, and parking areas are well-lit and secure.

The North campus enrolls over 41,000 credit and non-credit students with unique programs and certificates.
 Who Can Enroll? | Top
Miami Dade has an Open Door Admissions Policy, which provides educational opportunities to all who are interested in participating in the degree programs, courses, and services offered by the College.

The North Campus serves a diverse population of students with over half of them in the 18- to 25- year-old age group. Other students include adults new to college, those returning after time away from study, and those seeking new job skills.

Through the School of Advanced Studies, high school juniors and seniors also can enroll in a special dual enrollment program and take college-level courses along with their high school courses.
 How flexible are the programs? | Top
Whether students want to upgrade skills, retrain or start working on a bachelor’s degree, the North Campus will provide students with the opportunity to earn a degree or a one-year certificate, or prepare them for a licensing exam. With day and evening classes offered throughout the week, there is a convenient time for everyone to pursue an education.

We recognize that not everyone learns the same way. Whether you are comfortable in the traditional classroom or require more flexibility, North can tailor your education to meet your needs.

 Are There Special Interest Classes? | Top
Through Community Education students can enroll in an array of courses – during the day, evening and weekend – for adults and kids, on campus and at the centers near your home. If you are looking for a course to enrich you leisure time, to learn a new sport or hobby, or just to meet people with common interests, we have an affordable, convenient class to meet your needs.

The North Campus also addresses the training needs of local companies through the our Center for Professional Development and Corporate Training, which offers instruction and employee development workshops to business, government and industry. These workshops, on topics such as computer software use, management methods and customer service skills, may be conducted at client facilities or on our campus.

If you are interested in gaining military experience while enrolled in college classes, North offers ROTC in conjunction with the University of Miami.
 Is there an opportunity for students to interact outside the classroom? | Top
There are more than 40 clubs that appeal to a variety of extracurricular interests, including cultural, religious, social or service groups. The campus also has an active Student Government Association, many professional and honorary societies and an award-winning student newspaper, The Falcon Times..

We also have many student groups that participate in performing and visual arts activities. Special events on campus include festivals, concerts by campus ensembles and professional musicians, plays and gallery exhibits by internationally known artists.
