High School Students & Recent Grads

Graduating from high school is a big accomplishment. Now, it’s time to take that next step.  And we think that the quality and value of a Monroe County Community College education will serve you well. 

We have the programs to help you advance your education. Your future. Your life. Through one-on-one learning relationships with dedicated faculty and staff, small class sizes, and classes offered in a variety of convenient in-person, online and blended formats, MCCC offers a practical, personal education that gives you a lifetime of value.

And, if you are worried – like so many students and their parents are, and should be – about the high cost of attending college, we can put your mind at ease. MCCC’s cost is about a third of the cost of a typical public university.  And you can save even more if you live in Monroe County and meet prescribed scores on the SAT or ACT through the Trustee Merit Scholarship. So, you can graduate and start your career or transfer on (which we make easy to do) and save thousands (and thousands) of dollars.

We want you at MCCC!

Getting Started

Submit the online application for admission as a new MCCC student.


Please request any official high school transcripts, any official college transcripts and any ACT/SAT scores to be submitted to the Admissions Office. 

These items need to be completed on campus. If you have special needs or a disability, call the Learning Assistance Lab (734) 384-4167 to set up an appointment with a special needs counselor.

Complete Course Placement

MCCC requires that new students complete the Accuplacer Exam or have appropriate scores on the ACT/SAT. 

If you received the following scores on the SAT or ACT, you may be exempt from taking the Accuplacer assessment exam.

  • SAT:  EBRW – 470 or higher; MATH – 460 or higher
  • ACT:  English - 18 or higher; Reading - 18 or higher; Math - 20 or higher

The Accuplacer exam identifies current skill levels in math, English and Reading and could impact which courses in which you may enroll.  Please visit the Testing Center on the Main Campus, which is located in the La-Z-Boy Center.  Call (734) 384-4255 for a schedule of testing times. Testing is also available at the Whitman Center in Temperance in Room 1. Call (734) 847-0559.


Meet with a counselor and register for classes 

All new students are required to meet with a counselor in the Admissions and Guidance Office in Room A101 to review placement and/or ACT or SAT scores and discuss course selections. Call (734) 384-4104 for an appointment.  Registration periods are as follows:  Fall Semester – April through start of classes; Winter Semester – November through start of classes; Spring/Summer Semester – March through start of classes.
