Through On Course for College we offer college courses on campus, at local outreach centers, online, and at area high schools. To find out where and when courses are offered in your area, contact one of the individuals listed above. Wherever the class is offered, all of our institutions provide an exciting opportunity to experience college level coursework while you are still in high school. And successful completion of an MCCS course can save you time and money once you enroll in college.
In general high school students participating in On Course for College are required to have earned a grade-point average of B or better. But we recommend that you contact the community college you are interested in attending to find out its specific eligibility requirements and options.
