More than a great start! Our students
Every semester, about 18,000 students take credit classes at one of MCC’s five campuses. Some are working on certificates or associate degrees that will put them in the job market; some are planning to transfer to four-year schools.
Here’s a demographic look at our student population, based on Fall 2014 data:
- About 40 percent are full-time students, which means they take at least 12 credit hours.
- Female students: 57 percent. Male students: 43 percent.
- Minority students: 35 percent.
- Traditional-age students (recently graduated from high school): 65 percent.
- Percent receiving financial aid: about 40 percent.
- Number of students taking advantage of Missouri A+ scholarship program: 1,254
- Number of students who work in the area after graduation: 96 percent.
