2017-2018 Catalog

Online courses

Online courses give students the opportunity to balance commitments of schedules and studies allowing the classroom to come to them wherever they are.  Courses are accessible via the Internet using a standard Web browser.  Each week the student logs on to Blackboard Learn to access the online course(s) in which they are enrolled. MCC’s online courses are built upon a tradition of more than 20 years of delivering alternative learning. Online credit courses are equivalent to on-campus courses and maintain the same academic standard in content, assignments, and credit. Every course is managed by a qualified MCC instructor who provides information, guides students, prompts discussion, helps with assignments, answers questions, and grades work.

Online courses are designed by MCC faculty following the nationally recognized quality assurance and continuous improvement approach Quality Matters (QM).

Students who are not F-1 students and whose primary language is not English need to take the Accuplacer assessment to determine course placement. Call 531-622-2400 to get started. The TOEFL is not required. There are federal regulations specific to F-1 students and online classes. Contact International Student Services at 531-622-2281 or iss@mccneb.edu for guidelines.
