Student annual enrollment is approximately 15,000 (full- and part-time, credit and non-credit).

“Meet” with us!

We are still here! Just in a slightly different capacity. We are able to offer several options for information sessions for admissions and financial aid, Q&As to ask whatever questions you may have, a virtual Open House, as well as individual virtual meetings. See the links to register below.

If you would like to meet virtually with someone one-on-one – either virtually or in person – please fill out this form and someone will be available and in touch when requested.

Meet with an Enrollment Staff Member.

Getting Started

If you are ready to begin at MCC, your first step is to fill out an admissions application. Applications can be completed in several convenient ways: online (preferred); 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 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 high school transcripts/GED or proof of college completion and immunizations showing immunity to MMR and Varicella (chicken pox).

Tours:  Currently, all campus tours are on hold indefinitely. Please check back for more information.
