Student Right-to-Know Information

MCC is legally obligated to make specific information about graduation rates and transfer-out rates available to you. Use this information to make an informed choice about attending MCC.

Student Right-to-Know legislation requires that we report the proportion of students who began their studies full time and who complete programs within 150 percent of the normal time required for completion. Three years for associate's degrees and up to two years for certificates is normal at a community college with two-year programs.
