Costs and Facts

Tuition and fees are low and the class sizes are small! The learning environment is student-centered and student life is very active.

Students are strongly encouraged 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.

To be considered for the Pledge to Advance Connecticut (PACT) Scholarship, students must submit a FAFSA as well.

The majority of applicants are required to provide proof of high school or college completion, as well as proof of immunity to measles, mumps, rubella and varicella (MMRV), to gain admission to MCC. Additional supplemental items may be required as well, and the real-time list is available within the application.

Tours:  Guided tours are back! To ensure the safety of all, group tours are currently capped at 20. Contact Takia Lugo to schedule a tour.

Self – Guided tours are also available. Upon arriving to campus, stop into the Admissions Office to receive a campus map. We’ll gladly point out specific areas on campus based on your interests.
