MCC is ranked among the top 25 U.S. community colleges
“Where do I start when choosing a college?” is a question a lot of first-time college students have. It’s up there with “Should I start at a community college or go right to a four-year school?” and “What should I study?” and “How will I pay for it?” Only you know what’s best for you, but we’re here to help you figure it all out – and determine if MCC may be a good fit.
Monroe Community College is probably not going to be like your high school. Unless you graduated with thousands of students from 40+ countries, MCC may even be a LOT different – and we think that difference is a really good thing.
You’re going to meet tons of new people. Sure, some will be like people you know, but many won’t. And even if you were a great student in high school, our professors are going to challenge you in new and exciting ways. However, we do have pizza in the cafeteria, so in that way, it may feel just a tiny bit like high school.
The bottom line is, if you’re ready to have experiences you’ve never had before, then you’re ready for MCC.

A great thing about MCC is you can have as little or as much of the "college experience" as you want. Want to attend your classes and then head home? That’s fine. And for those looking for a dive deeper, there’s a lot to explore at MCC. From our athletic teams to 60+ clubs and organizations, events at the Flynn Campus Center to study abroad opportunities and on-campus housing, get ready for some new adventures.
Would you like to learn more? Come to campus, ask questions, tour our facilities, sit in a classroom, check out our housing, talk to professors, meet with an admissions counselor. In other words, come visit and experience MCC for yourself. The easiest way to do that is by RSVP’ing for our next Open House. Or, if you feel you’re ready to apply, you can start the application process today. Don’t worry, we’ll walk you through it all – including finding and applying for financial aid and scholarships.
What you do after MCC is up to you. Maybe you want to be a teacher, counselor or doctor. In that case, you’ll be continuing your education. And whether or not you take advantage of one of our 28 2+2 programs, we’ll help you transfer your credits and make the transition to your four-year school a breeze. Or, like many of our graduates, maybe you’ll be ready to enter the workforce in an in-demand field like healthcare or advanced manufacturing.
As an MCC graduate, you’ll have access to our alumni network – a great resource to help you get your foot in the door. The thing is, support doesn’t stop when you walk across the stage. And neither do the possibilities. Because once a Tribune, always a Tribune.
