Montgomery Community College is a state supported institution operating under an open door admission policy. This means that any person, whether a high school graduate or nongraduate, who is 18 years old or older and who is able to benefit from further formal education will be served by the institution. Students are admitted to Montgomery Community College without regard to race, sex, color, creed, age, handicap, religion or national origin.
The open door policy does not mean there are no restrictions on admission into specific programs. It does mean these restrictions are flexible enough to allow students opportunities for admission into specific programs when they demonstrate aptitude for these programs as determined by personal interest, academic background, placement tests, and/or personal interviews. If an academic deficiency exists, applicants will be given an opportunity to remove the deficiency by taking preparatory work.
North Carolina high school juniors and seniors may be admitted to curriculum courses concurrently through the Career and College Promise program.
Residency status of all curriculum applicants must be determined for the purpose of appropriate tuition assessment. Out-of-state applicants are admitted under the same admission requirements as North Carolina residents, but are required to pay tuition for curriculum courses at the out-of-state rate. Under North Carolina law, a person may qualify as a resident for tuition purposes in North Carolina, thereby being eligible for in-state tuition. To be considered for in-state residency status for tuition purposes, an out-of-state applicant may complete the Application for In-State Residence and Tuition Status.
2.) Submit an official high school or equivalent transcript and official transcripts from all colleges attended. An official transcript is one mailed directly from the high school, college or other institution to the Admissions Office at MCC. It is the applicant's responsibility to request that transcripts be sent.
3.) Take any required preadmission tests when notified by the Admissions Office.
4.) Complete any additional requirements for specific program.
5.) Next steps
All admission procedures should be completed at least four weeks prior to enrollment into a program. However, some curriculum programs at MCC have limited enrollment and prospective students are advised to apply early. When an enrollment quota for a class/program has been filled or the class/program has a specific prerequisite requirement, the applicant will be placed on an alternate or waiting list and notified by the Admissions Office. When all information is received, the academic record will be assessed and the applicant will be notified concerning acceptance and enrollment procedures. An applicant applying fewer than four weeks prior to enrollment may be notified to follow admission procedures as a walk-in student during open registration.
Individual degree, diploma, and certificate programs may have additional requirements. Please consult the MCC Catalog for more information.
The Orientation Guide for New Curriculum Students contains information about a variety of student-related topics that all curriculum students should find helpful. As always, students are welcome to call, email, or visit any Student Services staff member to ask for more details or clarification on any topic.
