Prospective students and their families can learn about the many MCC transfer and career programs and take campus tours.
Activities will vary by campus. At MCC-Longview, visitors can attend presentations on student success and financial aid, and check out a campus resource fair. MCC-Blue River will offer hands-on activities presented by the police and fire academies and the cyber security program. At MCC-Maple Woods, there will be presentations on Missouri’s A+ Scholarship program and career/major exploration. MCC-Business & Technology will spotlight its “Gold Collar” career programs as well as student organizations and campus resources. MCC-Penn Valley will host a radio station remote.
At each campus, faculty members, enrollment and financial aid specialists, and academic advisors will be on hand to answer questions. Students can apply for admission and enroll on the spot.
There will also be giveaways and refreshments, and one participant will be chosen at random to receive a $500 Metropolitan Community College scholarship.
“We want potential students to know that we are here to help them succeed,” says MCC Chancellor Dr. Kimberly Beatty. “Whether the goal is to transfer to a four-year institution or quickly land a good-paying, in-demand job, we can save students time and money.”
