In addition, it has one 3+1 transfer degree program with Siena Heights University.

MCCC students that are enrolled in any of the Business Division courses have the option to download any of the software that DreamSpark (formerly MSDNAA) has made available.  Software available through DreamSpark is mainly meant for Microsoft “developers” – the entire Microsoft Office Suite is not available.  Access is the only part of Office that is available.

If you choose to download any of the available software, you’ll need your student number and a valid e-mail address.  Technical support to install the software on your computer system is not available.
