3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Haven't attended many classes quite yet.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Macomb's class choices are amazing if you keep to the lower level courses. Political science for example the 1000 class has many different options but after that you are stuck to remote and obscure class times like 6-10pm on a Friday.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Not sure yet of the classes that will transfer, will have my orientation soon and then the determination will be known. But took general education classes that hopefully will transfer.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: The school is right down the street from me. I work midnights so the classes are all different times.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: My school offers a lot of classes online, day and night. It is very convenient for me to attend the school, and it is very close to my home.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
