The education I am getting is worth the money I am paying. I opted to attend a Community College for the first 2 years of my degree to keep the expenditure down. I only receive student loans for federal financial aid, but have received tuition waivers and other subsidies that I did not need to apply for separately. I believe these were based on my GPA but the financial aid summaries the school puts on the website are not very detailed and give little information as to how something was granted. MWCC has scholarships through their foundation but they must be applied for by March for the fall of the following year so make sure you pay attention to those dates!

LOVE IT! MWCC is an amazing school. Period. I adore every second I spend there. The professors are lovely, encouraging, helpful, kind, and knowledgeable. The atmosphere is very low key, the cafe is awesome, the library is fantastic-- an all around great school. Sometimes, you will find a person or professor who is a bit on the off side, but most everyone is very kind and understanding, and will help you with whatever you need. I love this school.

Online courses are easy to access, assignments can be completed any time within fair deadlines. If you procrastinate, completing a course may be a challenge, so don't fall behind!
