Manchester Community College, founded in 1963, is an open admission college, offering over 75 associate in science and associate in art degrees, and certificates. Student annual enrollment is approximately 15,000 (full- and part-time, credit and credit-free). The 160-acre, beautifully-wooded, state-of-the-art campus is easily accessible from I-291, I-84 and I-384 — just minutes from Hartford — with plenty of free parking.

Getting Started

Your first step is to fill out an admissions application. Applications can be completed in several convenient ways: online; by completing a printed application and returning it; or in person.  You will find access to the online and printable applications under step 1 of our 6-step process of becoming a MCC student.

Costs and Facts

Tuition and fees are low (only $159 per credit hour plus fees) and the class sizes are small. The environment is student-centered and student life is very active.

We encourage students to submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) if they are looking for financial assistance. Once submitted, students can access their MCC-specific financial aid package via the college’s student information portal,  myCommNet.

Applicants are required to provide proof of high school/GED or college completion, immunizations and pay a $20 application fee.

Campus Tours

The Admissions office offers guided campus tours for prospective students and their families, group tours for high school students, and other specialty tours. General campus tours will resume later in the Fall semester.

Campus tours for large high school and community groups are held on Fridays at 10:00 a.m.  Counselors or teachers who would like to reserve a spot to bring a group of students to MCC can schedule a date by contacting Elijah A. Oliver at or by calling 860-512-3214.

We look forward to welcoming you to our campus.
