Non-citizen Students

Thank you for visiting us at Montgomery Community College

 Montgomery Community College is NOT authorized to issue I-20 documents and as such, we regret that we cannot be a destination institution for international students wishing to come to the U.S. for purposes of continuing their education. Also, Montgomery Community College is NOT authorized to admit students who are in the U.S. on a F, M or J visa.

Non-citizens who have been given Permanent Resident status are considered the same as citizens for enrollment and financial aid purposes. The College is also allowed to enroll some non-citizen students who are not Permanent Residents who are visiting the U.S., depending on the type of visa they hold. In addition to admissions procedures, international students must meet with Enrollment Coordinator prior to enrolling in order to document their legal status. Any non-U.S. citizen who applies for admission to the College must submit certified transcripts of all secondary and college coursework with notarized English translation. College transcripts from countries other than the United States must be translated and evaluated by an independent company that provides such services to international students. Otherwise, no college credit may be given. For contact information for such companies, please see someone in the Enrollment Office.

Undocumented students

Based on policies and procedures outlined in the North Carolina Administrative Code (23 NCAC 02C .0301), MCC DOES allow the admission of students who do not have the necessary documentation to prove United States citizenship under the following conditions:

  • The student must be a graduate of a U.S. public high school, private high school, or home school that operates in compliance with state or local law. A GED is not acceptable.
  • The student will be classified as an out-of-state resident and must pay out-of-state tuition.
  • The student may not displace a North Carolina or U.S. citizen.
