Readmit Student

Whether your goal is to obtain a degree, transfer to a four-year college or university, learn new skills for job advancement or simply take a course for your own personal enrichment, you can make it happen at MCC.

I am a Readmit Student

A student who last attended MCC more than two years ago and has never attended another college or university.

Step 1: Apply for Admission

Students may obtain, apply and submit their completed application online at myCommNet, the college’s online student information system.

In submitting an application for admission, students will also need to provide:  

  • proof of high school graduation or GED from an approved secondary school
  • immunization verification of two doses each of vaccines for measles, mumps, rubella and varicella (MMRV)

Students are required to be in-state legal residents for a period of one full year prior to the date of the first class of the semester to receive the in-state tuition rate. The Admissions office may require proof of residency.

Note: For students who have previously applied to MCC, it is recommended that they check with the Admissions office at 860-512-3210 to see if this information is still on file.     

Step 2: Apply for Financial Aid 

All students are required to complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), using the processing code of 001392, and are encouraged to apply for financial aid. 

Students must be admitted to a degree program and provide proof of high school graduation or GED to be eligible for financial aid. Priority deadlines for financial aid are May 15 for the Fall semester and October 1 for the Spring semester. Students applying for financial aid after August 1 for the Fall semester or January 1 for the Spring semester should be prepared to pay tuition and fees at the time of registration. If eligible and approved for financial aid, students may be reimbursed for this payment. See Financial Aid for more details.

 Step 3: Verify Your Degree Program/Prerequisites   

Since it has been more than two years from when you last attended MCC, your interests and educational goals might have changed. If you would like to change your major, please complete a Declare a Major form.

Ensuring that you have taken the appropriate prerequisites is important. The Admissions office should have your SAT and Assessment Test scores, and previous coursework records on file. If your assessment test scores are outdated, you may be asked to take the test again. 

Step 4: Sign Up for Next Step Advising and Register for Classes

Next Step Advising provides academic advising to readmitted students.  During the one-hour session, you will do the following:

  • review your academic progress using Degree Works
  • select and register for your courses using myCommNet
  • speak with an advisor, if desired, to discuss your educational goals 

To register for a session, go to Next Step Advising.   

Step 5: Pay for College 

For the Fall/Spring semesters, tuition is due 21 days prior to the start of the semester.  After the tuition due date, payment is required within 24 hours of registration.

For the Winter/Summer sessions, payment is required at the time of registration. 

Payments can be made online through myCommNet or in person at the Bursar’s office, SSC L165.  A secure night deposit box and envelopes are available for payments made after the office is closed. Students who have applied for/are receiving financial aid should ensure that they have met all requirements/accepted their financial aid award prior to the tuition due date.

Payment plans are available for those students registered for the Fall and Spring semesters. 

Please visit Paying for College for more information.

Important: Payment is due within 24 hours of registration.  Failure to pay tuition and fees within this time may result in your classes being canceled.
