Metropolitan Community College Area

Omaha, NE

Brief Description

Metropolitan Community College, located in Omaha, NE offers a quality education at affordable prices. From half-price tuition for high school students wanting to get an early start on college to generous amounts of financial aid, MCC is one of the premier educational facilities in the Midwest. Founded in 1974 when the state's community college system was consolidated from eight to six college areas, MCC is known statewide for its emphasis on technical programs and ability to turn out a well-educated graduate prepared for the workforce.

With eight campus locations across the state, students are able to conduct their studies close to home without having to worry about commuting long distances to class. Omaha and the other campus locations are noted for their friendly small-town atmospheres and commitment to excellence in everything they do. Offering degrees and certificates available in-person as well as online, the college provides students the chance to obtain degrees for transfer to four-year schools or ones to let them immediately enter the workforce. Offering degrees in such fields as Accounting, Civil Engineering, Fire Science, Nursing and more MCC strives to give students a wide array of career choices.

One area of importance at MCC is its commitment to our nation's veterans. The school has been recognized as being very military-friendly, and offers veterans a number of programs to make the college experience as easy as possible. These include support groups for veterans and their families, financial aid programs, career advising services and much more. Diversity is another important issue to the school, and it conquers this topic by hosting events celebrating Black History and Latino/Hispanic Heritage Month. Also offering seminars in stress management and student success basics, the school is always looking for ways to make the college experience more enjoyable.

Metropolitan also wants to help those students who were unable to complete their high school studies by offering a GED program. Realizing education can be attained at any age under almost any circumstances, MCC offers class locations throughout the Omaha area for very affordable prices. Many students who have received their GED's through this program have gone on to become MCC students, with some eventually transferring to four-year colleges and receiving Bachelor's degrees. The school is also committed to saving the planet and its resources, and does so by using the latest in alternative energy sources and green initiatives to maintain a campus promoting a new way of living. Students who desire a quality education, expert guidance and a caring atmosphere can rest easy when they choose Metropolitan Community College.
