Many MCC students plan to transfer. Whatever your transfer destination, we'll work
to make sure your credits move easily. That's why we're experts at it.
We've worked out specific transfer agreements with many four-year colleges and universities,
so make sure you speak with an academic advisor before enrolling, particularly since
transfer agreements can change based on curriculum revisions.
MCC is a great value. Our tuition is one of the lowest in the area - about 1/3 that
of public four-year schools and a tiny fraction of private colleges. We offer many
ways to pay plus a tuition payment plan to make it even easier to afford college.
