Aside from the
fact that MCC will cost
you half of what you would pay at other colleges or universities,
MCC (like other community colleges) is outcome-oriented, leading to
either immediate career employment or transfer to a four-year university.
Statistics indicate that over a working lifetime,
a person with an associates degree can expect to earn as much as
a quarter of a million dollars more than an individual with only a high school diploma.
Students planning to go on to a four-year college
or university can use a two-year arts and sciences program that
leads to an associate of arts or associate of science degree that
transfer to a university.
If you are looking to move into your career
more quickly, MCC offers two-year
programs leading to associates degrees, as well as Occupational
Certificates of Achievement and Alternative
Training Programs that can be completed in one
year or less. These programs are designed
to lead directly into the job market. Most of the jobs
available today - -and those that will be available in the future
-- require more than a high school education but less than a four-year
MCC may also be the answer for students who are
not yet ready -- either socially or academically -- for a four-year
college as your community college offers ability assessment, personal
attention and academic preparation for college-level work.
