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.  We encourage you to sign up for a Virtual Admissions Information Session.
