The Cost of Attendance (COA) is an approximation of what it will cost to attend MCC for one year. The Cost of Attendance, or budget, is determined by many factors including, enrollment status, residency status, and living situation. A student's Cost Of Attendance helps determine how much aid a student can receive. Very few students receive aid to cover the full amount of their cost of attendance.

Below are budgets for the 2015-2016 award year (Fall 2015 and Spring 2016). The first table shows a budget for half-time to full-time, in-state students. The second table shows the budget for half-time to full-time out of state students. See also Tuition Rates here.
