Community Education

● Fun ● Recreation ● Enrichment ●

The Community Education department at Metropolitan Community College is committed to providing fun and informative educational opportunities for adults. MCC’s mission of "Preparing students, serving communities and creating opportunities for all" is just as applicable to non-credit students as it is to those seeking degrees. Community Education carries out MCC's mission every day. 

We prepare students by offering on-campus and online classes.

Our program is built on serving the community around us – we offer non-credit, horizon-expanding classes where you can be adventurous, try activities you’ve dreamed of, learn new hobbies and skills, create art and much, much more! 

We create opportunities for all with an eye toward success. Our classes are not grade oriented, only life enriching. Whether you take a class to expand your skills or to expand your horizons, we have something to offer you.

A Word About Waiting to Enroll...

Every class has a minimum required enrollment. If this minimum is not met one week prior to the starting date, the class will be canceled. If you find a class you like, encourage a friend to join, too. Sometimes two or three people make the difference between "go" and "cancel."

Enrollment Verification

When you enroll for a class, please mark the date, time and location on your calendar. Classroom assignments will be provided in your emailed course confirmation. We will notify you if a class in which you have enrolled is full or has been canceled or rescheduled.

Refund Policy

Our instructors are paid from fees collected, so we must guarantee a minimum enrollment to schedule a class. If it becomes necessary for you to withdraw from a class, please contact the college at 814.604.1000, at least five business days prior to the class start date to request a full refund.

No refunds will be made for withdrawals fewer than five business days prior to the start of the class.

Schedule Changes

The schedule is based on conditions at the time of publishing and is subject to change. Instructor assignments, dates, times and/or locations may be changed at the discretion of Community Education administration.


You may park in any area on campus designated as Student Parking.

Cancellations Due to Weather

When Metropolitan Community College District cancels classes, your Community Education class will not be held. Please be sure to listen for TV or radio announcements or check the college website for cancellations. If you are unsure, you may call 816.604.1000.

Should inclement weather prevent a class from occurring on the scheduled date, we will attempt to reschedule that class session. If you are unable to attend on the rescheduled date, you may request a refund.

Access for Students with Disabilities

If you have a disability which may impact your ability to access a class or community event, please contact the campus Disability Support Services (DSS) Coordinator. Early notification is encouraged as some accommodations may take time to put in place.
