Today matters. And today, you can start changing your life.

It’s never too late, and you’re never too old to begin something new. MMCC welcomes students of all ages. In fall 2016, 889 students who were 25 and older attended MMCC.

Get school on your schedule with flexible options.

You’re busy—so you need options for how and when you take courses.

MMCC offers more than 700 classes each semester, 100 of which are online

  • Flexible learning options work with your schedule. These include over 100 online courses each semester and evening on-campus courses. Plus, with open lab hours available in the evenings, our Tech & Trade Programs can be completed when you want to burn the midnight oil.
  • Our two campuses, two technical centers, and off-campus learning options allow you to attend courses at a location that's convenient for you. Just one more way MMCC fits your life.
  • You’re busy. We get that. That’s why MMCC has created evening hybrid courses to fit your schedule. Attend college full-time and only come to campus two nights a week. The hybrid format mixes the flexibility of an online class with the stability of face-to-face classroom instruction.
  • We offer nearly 50 academic credentials to prepare you for a new or better career in the health science fields, tech and trade areas, occupational fields (like computer information, criminal justice, and early childhood education to name a few), and transfer programs that help you save money on your future bachelor degree.

Credit for Your Experience

You may be closer to a degree than you think. MMCC may be able to offer you college credits for prior experience you’ve gained in the workforce or military service. In select Tech & Trade Programs, no complicated application or portfolio is required--just sit down and share your story with us!

One step at a time.

Rapid-training programs take only five to nine weeks to complete. Offerings include truck driver training, CNA (Certified Nurse Assistant), Phlebotomy, and more. You can start here and then continue building your skills into an advanced degree.

Some of our career-track credentials consist of as few as 32 credits of coursework. Associate degrees are 62 credits. You can achieve your degree at your own speed. Start with just a course or two or enroll full time and finish in only 1-2 years.

An education means a better career.

If you’re wondering “what might have been,” why not wonder instead “what might be?” Even if you’re currently employed, you can train for something better. Higher pay. Higher job security. Higher satisfaction with the way you spend 40 hours a week. And proof that you can do it.

Associate degrees and credentials pay off. Not only in terms of higher starting salaries and lifetime earnings. They allow you to pursue something better for yourself and family. A new start—a new challenge—a better path forward. A degree can get you a new career or a better one.
