MCC Campus(es): Business & Technology

How long does it take to earn a certificate or degree?

An associate's degree can be completed in as little as two semesters.

When can I enter the program?

 In the spring, summer, or fall semester.

Does this program meet the qualifications for my VA benefits?

Yes, VA benefits can be used to earn a degree or certificate in any of the MCC programs. Veterans have been earning degrees at MCC since 1921, during WWI. Earning a degree at MCC saves money and leaves you with more money to pursue 4-year degree or even a master's degree. MCC awards 30 credits for your prior military technical training, allowing you to start and finish one of our ninety programs in about half the time.

How much does it cost?

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.
