For Students & Parents
Do you qualify for free or reduced-cost lunch? If so, you could be eligible for MCC’s Inspiring Every Day Scholarship.
MCC’s College Now program offers a great way to experience college while you’re in high school. Here are some advantages and things to consider.
- College Now courses at MCC are one-third the cost of regular MCC tuition but offer the same high-quality experience and number of credits as courses offered on-campus.
- They can fulfill college degree requirements including prerequisites and electives.
- Students receive grades and feedback throughout the course, eliminating high-stakes, end-of-the-year testing.
- College Now courses allow you to explore your interests and show colleges that you are a motivated student.
- Students who participate in College Now programs are more likely to graduate from high school and complete college degrees.
Before you register
It is important to know you are beginning a college transcript. Unless you withdraw before the stated deadline, courses will become part of your permanent academic record. Before students register we suggest the following:
- Discuss the cost, workload and future college plans with your parent, guardian or high school counselor.
- Be sure to familiarize yourself with MCC’s policies and student responsibilities.
After you register, set up an MCC student network account
MCC will send a confirmation letter and email confirming your registration and instructions for setting up your student account.
Your MCC Network account (Email) is important because it is where you go to:
- Pay your bill
- Request transcripts
- Check your grades
- Register for future courses
About transferring credits
MCC is part of the State University of New York (SUNY) system. While the majority of colleges will accept MCC credits with a course grade of C or higher, we cannot guarantee that all credits will be accepted because each college sets its own transfer policy. If you are planning to attend a college other than MCC, it’s a good idea to check with that college’s transfer policy.
