MCC is approved for attendance for non-immigrant students by the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service. Since 1963, the College has admitted International Students from more than 30 different countries each semester.
The institution's objectives are to:
- provide students with the education they want and need;
- enrich the College as an educational resource for MCC students and the local community;
- contribute to the promotion of international understanding.
International Students (non-immigrants) should request an International Application from the Admissions Office and take the following steps:
- Fill out the application.
- Provide certified translations in English of all secondary and higher educational experience.
- Submit results of the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).
- Submit verification of financial ability to cover expenses for one academic year.
- Submit the $20 application fee.
- Prospective International Students should know that MCC now has Residence Halls.
- Prospective International Students should know that MCC is a public institution and therefore tuition for non-residents is double that for residents. See college catalog.
- Prospective International Students should know that health insurance, repatriation insurance, and evacuation insurance are mandatory and will be included in your tuition bill.
- Fall semester students should apply before June 1st, and Spring semester students should apply before November 1st.
- International Students interested in working should know that working off campus their first academic year is not approved by the Immigration and Naturalization Service.
- International Students who are accepted to the College will receive an immigration form I-20. This is to be taken to the U.S. Consulate (Embassy) in order to get a student visa. Students arriving on a B-2 or Visitor visa may not always have their status changed to student status, because they have declared their purpose to be in the United States is as a visitor. Interested students who haven't yet been accepted should indicate to the Consulate or Embassy that they want a prospective student status stamped on their visa document.
We hope to see you on campus very soon.
