MCC has an open admission policy, which means all students who apply for admission are accepted to all of the MCC colleges (special admission programs may have additional requirements for acceptance).
Students who want to enroll in Metropolitan Community College have several avenues that lead to admission: a high school diploma, a High School Equivalency Test (HiSET) that certifies the equivalency of high school graduation, or home-school graduation. International students are also welcome on the MCC campuses.
In some cases, those who are 18 and older and who haven't graduated from high school or or completed a HiSET may be admitted as special students. During their first term, the college limits them to 12 credit hours and then re-evaluates their status during subsequent enrollments. High school students under 18 may be admitted if recommended by their principal or counselor and if their application is approved by the appropriate college official.
