The focus on foundations education at MCC is one of the strategies for increasing retention and completion rates overall. Our priorities are related to the improvement of course completion, persistence, and graduation rates at the college.


In collaboration with faculty and staff, Success Coaches are committed to providing support services for all prospective, new, and continuing students who tested into foundations level courses by advising students holistically to support them in reaching their academic and career goals.
