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.

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.

Tours:  Currently, all guided campus tours are on hold, but you are welcome to tour campus. Sign-in at the security desk and head to Admissions, where we will provide a campus map and answer questions.  Face masks must be worn at all times while on campus. We encourage you to sign up for a Virtual Admissions Information Session to learn more about all MCC has to offer.
