A+ Information

Access to financial aid services (including A+) is not available to visiting students.

As a visiting student, it is your responsibility to speak with your home institution about how MCC credits will transfer back to that college. Should you decide you'd like to pursue a degree from MCC, you will need to re-apply for admission as a transfer student.
