FastTracks Kansas City
FastTracks is an accelerated, focused and affordable program available to students wanting to earn their associate in arts and bachelor of science degrees in four years. This program offers a more seamless transfer process and removes challenges that typically add time and cost to degree completion.
This program is a collaboration between Metropolitan Community College and Northwest Missouri State University, Maryville.
Students take mostly MCC classes the first two years. In the third and fourth years, Northwest classes are held at Northwest's Kansas City campus in Gladstone. Students work closely with an advisor while in the program and are encouraged to work with a career coach. Additionally, students will be required to participate in a profession-based, credit-earning learning experience such as an internship or practicum.
Degree in 3
Degree in 3 is a faster route to a bachelor’s degree at the University of Kansas. Metropolitan Community College, several K-12 school districts and the area's two other community colleges have partnered with KU on Degree in 3.
Degree in 3 refers to completing a four-year degree three years after high school. For that to be possible, high-achieving students take a year’s worth of college credit courses in high school, then spend a year on a community college campus to earn their associate degree. The final two years are spent at the KU Edwards Campus.
Missouri Innovation Campus
The Missouri Innovation Campus is an exciting, progressive collaboration between the Lee's Summit R-7 School District, Metropolitan Community College and the University of Central Missouri. By engaging business partners and community organizations, such as Cerner and DST, the MIC is reshaping the way students experience education.
