Adult Learners

Adult Students Has it been a long time since you’ve been a student? Take the chance – why not you? Why not now? 

College can be tough, but it can also be one of the most rewarding decisions you ever make. A college degree will give you greater employment opportunities, earning potential and personal satisfaction. You should be proud that you are taking the first steps!

And, there are a lot of others just like you on MCCC’s campus. In fact, about 25 percent of MCCC students are over the age of 25, and 15 percent are over the age of 30.

Convenience for Busy Adults

Monroe County Community College understands that adult students have a lot going on, and juggling going to college with a full-time job and family commitments can seem like a daunting endeavor. That’s why MCCC is so focused on being flexible and responsive.

We offer courses during the evening and on weekends, and we offer plenty of online and blended course sections.  Many MCCC degree programs allow students to complete the majority of the coursework online, and some can be completed totally online. With two convenient physical locations, MCCC is within easy reach for students throughout Southeast Michigan and Northwest Ohio.

Getting Started

Submit the online application for admission as a new MCCC student.  Even, if you were a dual enrollment student in the past, you will still need to reapply as a new MCCC student. 

APPLY NOW

Please request any official high school transcripts, any official college transcripts and any ACT/SAT scores to be submitted to the Admissions Office.

These items need to be completed on campus.  If you have special needs or a disability, call the Learning Assistance Lab (734) 384-4167 to set up an appointment with a special needs counselor.

MCCC requires that new students complete the Accuplacer Exam or have appropriate scores on the ACT/SAT.  The Accuplacer exam identifies current skill levels in math, English, and Reading and could impact which courses in which you may enroll.  Please visit the Testing Center on the Main Campus, which is located in the La-Z-Boy Center. Call (734) 384-4255 for a schedule of testing times. Testing is also available at the Whitman Center in Temperance in Room 1. Call (734) 847-0559.
