Northeast Metro 916


What is N.E.M.T.-916?

Northeast Metro Career & Technical Center is located on the Century College campus.  There are eleven school districts which are part of the N.E.M.T. Consortium, which includes South Washington County.  The 916 courses focus on providing a quality, hands-on education in a safe environment while developing skills beyond high school.   

Who is eligible for 916 courses?

Students who are either juniors or seniors may be eligible for 916 courses.  However, students need to make sure they are addressing their required courses for graduation before they can participate in 916 courses.  It is advised that students consult with their counselor to see if they can work the 916 courses into their schedule. 

What courses are offered at 916?

Please see the N.E.M.T.-916 course descriptions guide for course offerings.  This course description guide is available online or you can also obtain a paper copy in the Counseling & Career Center. 

What is the time commitment for 916 courses?

Students from Woodbury High School participate in the first time block at 916, which covers the first two periods of the day.  Most 916 classes are offered as semester classes, so when students commit to attending, they are making a commitment for either a half year (four elective credits) or full year (eight elective credits).  (Certain programs require a full year commitment-please refer to the registration guide for this information) 

Do students earn college credits while attending 916 classes?

In the registration guide, under each course description it will indicate whether or not students can earn college credits in taking that course.  More than 100 college courses at 12 colleges are articulated through the 916 courses.  To find out which colleges grant college credits, you can visit the 916 website:  http://www.nemetro.k12.mn.us/career/articulation.html

 How do I register for a 916 course? 

Registration materials for the 2008-09 school year were distributed in the classrooms during the month of December.  If a student registered for a 916 course at that time, they had the best chance to get placed in their chosen course.  If students did not register at that time, they can obtain the 916 application form in the Counseling & Career Center.   

A student can also attempt to enroll in 916 courses after registration is completed, or during the school year at the beginning of first and third term.  If a student attempts to enroll after registration or during the next school year, course availability will likely be limited.
