MCC offers three programs for high school students to jumpstart their college education. Students
take actual college courses online, at their high school or at an MCC location. Plus, students pay
half-price of the current tuition rate and may transfer their college credit to any college or
university that accepts MCC credit. Call 402-457-2213 for information on the programs below.
