Tuition and Fees

MCCC’s in-district tuition rate is about one-third that of most four-year public colleges and universities. And, Monroe County residents who apply for admission and send ACT or SAT scores and high school transcripts to MCCC by April 15 will automatically be considered for the Trustee Merit Scholarship, which pays for up to $1,500 of tuition.*

*Additional conditions apply. Please see the Trustee Merit Scholarship Brochure

Billable Contact Hours^:  MCCC determines the cost for attending a course by the course’s billable contact hours instead of credit hours.  A billable contact hour reflects the amount of time in a typical week during a full semester course that a student spends in direct contact with an instructor, laboratory equipment or other instructional setting. Billable contact hour information, in addition to credit hour information, for each course can be found in the course information for each class in myWebPAL

Residency Status

Tuition will be assessed and collected according to the residency status of the student on the first day of the semester or the first day the student is officially enrolled after the first day of the semester. Requests for change of status must be submitted by that time.

Resident rates will be assessed in cases where: 

1. The student, or parents of a dependent student, own(s) either property or a business which is located within Monroe County (Michigan). 

2. The student’s tuition is paid by his or her employer and either the student or the employer is considered a county resident. (An employer is considered a county resident if that employer operates a business, or branch thereof, within Monroe County, Michigan). 

3. The student is considered a resident, defined as follows: 

  • The residence of a student who is a dependent follows that of his/her parent or legal guardian. Student must be claimed on current health insurance or prior tax return of parent/legal guardian. 
  • A person may qualify as a resident by residing: 1) six months within the state of Michigan, and 2) 30 days within a Monroe County (Michigan) precinct. If a person moves to another precinct within the county, he/she is still considered a resident of the county. 
  • Any individual using educational assistance under either Chapter 30 (Montgomery GI Bill* - Active Duty Program), Chapter 33 (Post 9/11 GI Bill*) of Title 38, United States Code, and/or the Marine Gunnery Sergeant John David Fry Scholarship (38 U.S.C. §3311 (b)(9)) who lives in the State of Michigan while attending Monroe County Community College (regardless of his/her formal state of residence) shall be charged no more than in-state tuition.

In cases where the residency of a student is considered in doubt, the student may be asked to provide proof in the form of: 1) up-to-date voter registration card, 2) a vehicle registration form (pre-printed by the Secretary of State), 3) a driver’s license, 4) an official communication from a municipal official indicating how long the student has resided in the county. Questions concerning individual cases in regard to these regulations should be directed to the registrar.
