STEP 3: Send us your Transcripts & SAT/ACT Scores

If you've graduated from high school within three years, send us your high school transcripts and standardized test scores . If you've attended other colleges, have your college transcripts sent to us as well. If it's been longer than three years since you've graduated, you may need to complete additional placement testing (see info below).

How to send us your transcripts

Send them electronically via Parchment. Visit and request that an electronic version be sent to Mid Michigan Community College. It's fast, easy, and secure. And if you're still in high school, it's free. If you've graduated, it's only $3.25. If you need help creating your Parchment account and ordering transcripts, please refer to this Parchment Quick Start Guide.


  • Collect them in person, through the mail, or in electronic format. Deliver them to MMCC through any of the following means.
  • Drop them off to an admissions team member at either campus.
  • Email a copy to
  • Fax Attn: Admissions to 989.386.6613
  • Mail them to us: Mid Michigan Community College Attn: Admissions 1375 S Clare Ave Harrison, MI 48625

How to send us your SAT or ACT scores

When you take the SAT, you can indicate MMCC as a recipient schools. If you have already taken the SAT, you can deliver them in person, email, mail, or fax. Use the contact information listed above.

Or, you can sign in to your College Board account and request that a copy of your scores be sent to MMCC. For more information, visit this College Board page.

Complete additional placement testing if necessary

Appropriate placement in courses promotes student success and allows us to assist students in selecting courses that align with their skill levels. To place you correctly, we'll need this information from you. If you do not have access to one or both of these documents, you may need to do additional placement testing. Your Mid Mentor can help you determine what you need to submit or what testing needs to be completed.


STEP 4: Attend Orientation.

All incoming students must attend an orientation. At orientation, you will connect with other students, learn success skills, and meet with your College support team.

You will also be able to meet with an Academic Advisor who will help you schedule and register for your classes.

If orientations are currently open for the semester in which you're planning to register, you can RSVP HERE.
