Section Updates and/or Changes

While every possible step has been taken to ensure the accuracy of the catalog, sometimes minor changes must be made throughout the year that are in the interest of the students or the College. These are the updates and/or changes made to the online catalog sections after the publication of the 2014-2015 catalog. 

Enrollment/General enrollment requirements for new students

General enrollment requirements for new students, changed to read:


Students using financial aid are required to have a high school diploma or equivalent:

*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. The College reserves the right to evaluate requests for admission into certain degree programs and to refuse admission to certain programs when considered to be in the best interest of the College. Students may be required to take developmental coursework or prerequisite credit courses/programs prior to entering select MCC classes.

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.

*For specific enrollment procedures for current high school students, see Admission Requirements; international students should see Admission of international students.
