Mother Nature is a Member of Our Faculty

On our vibrant, 98-acre Sonoran Desert campus, Mother Nature serves as an instructor, classroom and learning laboratory. In the fall of 2014, students participated as 300 endangered, native desert pupfish were released by the Arizona Game and Fish Department into the campus cienega wetlands area. MCC Red Mountain has been recognized with the North American Native Plant Society’s 2014 Founders Conservation Award as well as the National Wildlife Federation’s 2016 Certified Wildlife Habitat designation.

Smaller Campus Makes a Sizeable Difference

A student/instructor ratio of 20:1, leading-edge learning labs and student-friendly class schedules create a nurturing learning environment. The enormity and overwhelming scope of large university campuses is replaced with one-on-one collaborations, engaged faculty and motivating experiences.

Flexible 2-4-1 Class Schedule

What’s Your Ideal Class Schedule?

  • Classes Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday
  • 5-days-a-week classes condensed to 4 days
  • Friday off or Friday-only classes. You decide.

Our students indicated they wanted more options in scheduling. In response, MCC Red Mountain has created our new 2 day/4 day/1 day schedule offering flexibility to help students create a class schedule around their busy lives. Our most popular three-credit classes – now offered on Fridays only – may be just what those who are working need to begin higher education. For others, having no classes on Fridays may be the best option. Whatever you pick, MCC Red Mountain is here to help you succeed.
