A college degree is an investment to improve your life, not burden you with debt. MECC’s tuition is thousands less than other local colleges and universities and we do not participate in the federal student loan program. MECC offers financial aid in the form of scholarships and grants which do not need to be repaid. With 96% of students receiving financial assistance, a higher education doesn’t have to come at a high price. Full and part-time students who are enrolled in a program of study at MECC may apply for financial aid to take credit classes.
