  • Meet one of the following requirements:
    • Complete at least 15 credit hours at MCC and be enrolled during the academic year you qualify for a degree,
    • Complete a minimum of 56 credit hours at MCC if you are not enrolled during the academic year you qualify for a degree.

Academic Residency for Servicemembers

Metropolitan Community College limits residency requirements to no more than twenty-five percent of the degree requirements for all degrees for active-duty servicemembers. Academic residency can be completed at any time while active-duty servicemembers are enrolled. Reservists and National Guardsmen on active-duty are covered in the same manner.

Commencement requirements

You can participate in the MCC all-campus commencement if you have:

  • Completed a degree/certificate in the fall semester of the previous year
  • Applied for graduation and are on track to complete your required hours for a spring or summer degree/certificate

The Class of 2015 includes graduates from the fall of 2014 and candidates for spring and summer 2015 graduation.
