CollegeNOW!

WHAT IS COLLEGE NOW?

CollegeNow! is a program specifically designed for high school students to jumpstart their college education with half-price tuition.  Students enroll into sections taught by Metropolitan Community College faculty on campus or online. Begin the pursuit of an associate degree and/or transfer MCC college credit to other colleges and universities with CollegeNow! 

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

Nebraska resident high school students who meet course prerequisites.

HOW  IS  CREDIT  EARNED?

College credits earned through CollegeNow! will appear on a student’s MCC transcript. MCC credits earned may transfer to other colleges or universities.  To learn about transferability at local four-year colleges, please visit the Articulation webpage.  It's important to remember that the grades earned while taking a college credit course will count toward the student's college grade point average (GPA) and will be a permanent part of their postsecondary transcript.
