MGCCC Schools provide a roadmap for students as they work toward a certificate, diploma, or degree. Each school encompasses academic, career, technical, and/or health sciences programs of study in areas that are similar. Students may choose a technical path, but then decide to continue their studies at a university, or they may start out with the intention of transferring to a university and decide a one-year career program suits them better. MGCCC Schools are designed to give students various options within similar areas of study to make their path to successful degree completion easier.

  • Determine your top three career choices and declare the appropriate School to guide your course selection.
  • Investigate possible university transfer programs, if applicable.
  • Schedule to meet with your advisor by the end of the semester to declare your official major and develop a plan.
  • Pre-register for your second semester classes.
