3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: There are a lot of different class for the Gen-Ed courses but not so much for the non gen-ed courses.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Once I spoke with an advisor at Detroit Mercy University (UDM) , transferring credits from Macomb Community College (MCC) was easier. Macomb's councilors tried to help and encouraged me to seek advisement from UDM. I did and the process of transferring credits was simply afterwards with the agreement MCC and UDM have with Macomb's University Center.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: There are not any Saturday classes offered during the spring/summer semester. It would be nice to have more classes offered in the evening for those who work during the day. It would be nice to have classes offered on days other than Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday. How about Monday/Thursday or Tuesday/Wednesday.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: As far as community colleges go, the range and availability of basic 100 and 200 level classes is decent, and their instructors are for the most part pretty competent. The only issue I have had was with the massive office runaround trying to enroll and register for classes my first semester; nearly two full business days, there at south campus from 10AM to 4PM being sent back and forth from Admissions, to Counseling, to Financial Aid, back to Admissions, and so on. Their bureaucracy in the Student Services department is astounding, and a large part of the reason my father before me dropped out 30 years ago.

There are many advantages to being a Macomb Community College student. With nearly 200 degree choices, students have more than enough of an incentive to thrive in this environment. Over the years, MCC has evolved into more than just a two-year college. The University Center offers students the opportunity to obtain their bachelor’s and/or master’s degree in close to 50 fields. In addition to these offerings, the University Center has also partnered with major universities in order to provide concurrent enrollment programs. Oakland University has partnered with MCC in developing a dual-enrollment program—the Macomb 2 Oakland (M2O) program—allowing Macomb County students access to more meaningful degree options. Wayne State has also seen the benefit of offering a concurrent enrollment program. The WayneDirect program offers dual enrollment to students, who can then take advantage of facilities and programs at both institutions.

Tips for Earning Credits
Students should always be following the Web site for unique ways to earn credit and/or experience while studying at Macomb. Many valuable resources can be found through Career Services, work study programs, campus job postings, and student activities.
Academic/Testing Requirements
Placement testing is something all students will go through during the admissions process. This is not something that should cause stress or anxiety, it's simply there to use as a guide to place each student in the proper entry level for certain subjects.
Transferring Credits In & Out
Whether students are interested in transferring into MCC to complete their two-year degree or working within one of MCC's many university transfer programs, there are many resources available to make this process painless. Students need to remember the importance of regularly monitoring their academic programs and statuses.
Work & Life Experience Credits
Experience from trades, apprenticeships, corporate training, military exposure, self-taught skills, and a variety of licensures are just a few of the ways students can obtain work and life experience credits.
Class Style & Structure
Every professor has a unique teaching style. Most MCC instructors use combined educational techniques in order to engage students and ensure a well-rounded educational experience. Classes are small and offer a more intimate student interaction. It's not the norm to find a course strictly taught through lecture.
Course Registration Process
Students have four ways to register: via Web Adviser, by phone, in person, or through the mail. The recent improvements made to registration via Web Adviser have made a previously painful process almost seamless. However, it's up to the student to be aware of his or her assigned registration times, and also to make sure all online account information is accurate. So many students encounter unnecessary problems because of simple things like unentered major choices freezing their account.
