College Toolkit

Welcome to Metropolitan Community College

We want to help you make a smooth transition into MCC-KC by sharing information that is critical to you as a new student, and things you'll be expected to know when you start classes. Even returning students may learn something new!

This College Success Toolkit is a supplement to the New Student Orientation held on campus at each college. These pages give you information you need as you start and progress through your semester. We hope this online resource will help you feel positive, confident, and organized when you start the term.

While you may choose to go through these pages in any order, it is important that you read each section. Don't worry - we've kept them short. The best way is to start at the beginning. Just use the navigation at the top and bottom of each page to work through the various topics.
