Adult Students

Returning to school may be a big, difficult decision. But this is the right time to do it.

If you are age 25 or older and don't have a college degree, you could attend Monroe County Community College TUITION-FREE. 

Through Michigan Reconnect, a program of the State of Michigan, students who are age 25 and up can apply to attend MCCC tuition-free to earn an associate degree or Pell Grant-eligible skill certificate. Michigan Reconnect is designed specifically for eligible adults who want to start – or finish – an associate degree, technical degree or skills certificate.

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.
