MPCC has numerous high quality and nationally recognized programs available to our students.
We offer three transfer degrees designed to prepare students to continue on to a four year college to complete their Bachelor Degree. Additionally, all students, including international students, may choose to participate in any of the many technical programs offered at MPCC. These programs include a number of Associate of Applied Science degrees in the Business, Health and Technical fields as well as the Associate of Arts, Associate of Science and Associate of General Studies degrees.
Students may choose to complete an Associate of Arts (AA), Associate of Science (AS) or Associate of General Studies (AGS). These programs prepare students to transfer to a four year college where they will complete their Bachelor's Degree. In the U.S., it is common for students to begin their college education at a two year institution/community college (such as MPCC). This option is popular because it allows students to complete quality courses within a student friendly environment where small classes and dedicated instructors enhance student's learning opportunities. Additionally, because of government funding, the cost of courses at the community college is significantly less than at a four year college. Thus, students receive a high standard education at a minimal cost.
Our courses and programs are designed to provide students with a smooth transfer as they move on to a four year college or university to complete their bachelor's degree. We have agreements with most of the Nebraska universities that allow students to transfer smoothly between institutions. MPCC works closely with other colleges to ensure that courses the student takes at MPCC meets both the requirements for their Associates degree as well as for their intended Bachelor's degree. An additional advantage of attending a community college and then transferring to a four year college is that for students who choose to do an internship as part of their Bachelor degree will be allowed additional time for this-twice as much as students who only attend a four year college.
Being a small college, we are able to work closely with our students to ensure they receive the education most appropriate to their needs. Our students who transfer on are noted for their strong educational background and preparedness and do exceptionally well. As a rule, they continue to advance in their educational pursuits.
