MCC is a Smart Decision

Build Your Future. Not Your Debt.

An education is one of life’s most valuable assets. And it doesn’t have to put you deeply in debt. MCC delivers a highly enriching educational experience on two exciting campuses and at a great value. Annual tuition is 75%* less than what many in-state colleges and universities charge.

While college costs have skyrocketed, leaving many students burdened by huge debts, MCC has remained affordable with fees and tuition notably low. But there’s more to our value than just saving money. MCC students gain competencies through studies that are embedded with the Four Cs — Communication, Critical Thinking, Civic Engagement and Cultural and Global Engagement.

MCC students transferring to Arizona public universities earn an average 3.0 GPA their first year. More than 1,500 graduating from those colleges each year started as MCC transfers. **
