General enrollment requirements for new students

Any person may be enrolled who (1) has a high school diploma or equivalent* or (2) is at least 18 years of age and wishes to benefit from a program of study at the College. Additionally, high school students may be enrolled through the early entry process, detailed in Admission Requirements.

*MCC accepts high school diplomas from accredited high schools and those earned through the Correspondence High School online program offered by UNL and accredited by the Nebraska Department of Education; however, all other high school diplomas earned online are not accepted. Individuals who have not completed high school are encouraged to obtain their GED that has been developed by the General Educational Development Testing Service of the American Council on Education. More information on MCC's Adult Basic Education Program can be obtained at

Enrollment at the College, however, does not mean admission to all courses or programs or guarantee financial aid. Students may be required to take developmental coursework or prerequisite credit courses/programs prior to entering MCC classes. The College reserves the right to evaluate requests for enrollment and to refuse enrollment to any person when considered to be in the best interest of the College.

The American College Testing (ACT) placement test is not required; however, students who have taken the ACT within the last two years may have the scores sent to MCC or bring a copy of the score report when meeting with an advisor.
