Passport Program

The Passport Program is a Learning Community for students interested in starting at MCC and then transferring to a four-year institution.

This community consists of two groups of up to 25 students each who will complete their first academic year of college together. Students will attend full-time during the day, taking three courses each quarter, completing a total of 40.5 (27 semester) transferable quarter hours.

MCC Students

A Learning Community is a supportive, cooperative environment in which students complete courses together as a group. Research shows that students academically perform better when they learn together in a group. Teaching and learning are also enhanced when students, faculty and counselors work together.
