Parent Information

Laker Parents, Welcome!

Whether you have a student considering MMCC or who is already attending, we want to congratulate your efforts. A college education opens doors, not only for the graduate, but for the communities that they go on to serve in their respective careers.

It takes support to make the choice to continue an education. MMCC applauds parents and caregivers who have supported students toward reaching higher and achieving more. Thank you.

Close to home. Far from ordinary.

Our faculty care, and our average class size is 18. We understand how to teach and how to listen to our students--how to serve and how to deliver an exceptional education. That's why we really do believe that our students get more from their time at Mid.

Because our degrees and courses transfer to colleges and universities across the state and nation, we can accommodate all goals. Whether you live nearby and have a student who could take a course or two over the summer, or you have a future doctor who wants to save on general education courses' costs, or you have a future plastics technician who will enter the workforce in two years, MMCC has something valuable to offer.

Talk to us. Ask questions. We want to help you figure out what makes sense for your family as you consider college paths.

Degrees Pay. Community Colleges Save.

$120 / Week**

is the median additional earnings of an associate degree holder vs someone with no college experience.

That means that these additional earnings will pay for an associate degree in about two years.

At MMCC, we offer a number of career-track associate degrees, which allow students to enter the workforce in only two years time. Beyond these, we offer a number of training credentials and certificates in which students can gain entry-level jobs in a year or less.

$460 / Week**

is the median additional earnings of a bachelor degree holder vs someone with no college experience.

Over 50% of our students start at MMCC with intentions of getting a bachelor degree. That's why MMCC participates in the Michigan Transfer Agreement and creates specialized transfer degree paths that feed directly into bachelor degree programs that our students intend to enter.

We are proud to have hundreds of our students attending universities across the state and nation. We know that they will save between $10,000-$50,000+ on those degrees because they started at Mid. And we know that they didn't sacrifice the quality of their education simply because they improved the quality of their family's finances.

It adds up--

$250,000

in additional earnings for an associate degree over a 40-year career

$954,720

in additional earnings for an associate degree over a 40-year career
