- References: Applicants will enter the names and contact information (including email addresses) of two individuals in the online application. The system will prompt each person to submit the reference online where they will provide a professional recommendation on your behalf. References should be from an instructor/professor/teacher, manager or supervisor of a work/volunteer organization. NO recommendations should be obtained from family members, friends, etc. A second should be from a manager or supervisor of a work/volunteer organization.

and high school that you have attended sent directly to MCC.
- Mail: MCC accepts official transcripts mailed directly from your school to the Student Data Center. Fill out a Transcript Request Form and give it to your former/current school to have an official transcript mailed to MCC.
- E-transcripts: MCC accepts electronic transcripts through an electronic exchange with both Parchment and the National Student Clearinghouse. MCC does not accept any form of emailed transcript.
