Many students need educational financial assistance for various reasons and the Financial Aid Office is available to help you meet the basic expenses of tuition and fees. Even if you feel you may not be eligible for aid, we encourage all students to apply for it using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The application is available starting in October of the previous year (example: if applying for Fall 2020, FAFSA is available starting October 2019).

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.

Are you the parent or family member of a future MCC student? Find the answers to your questions on our Parents & Family Members page.

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.
