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 studies at a university, or they may start out with the intention of transferring to a university and decide a one-year career program is more suiting. MGCCC Schools are designed to give students various options within similar areas of study to make the path to successful degree completion easier.
To get started:
- 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 area of interest and develop a plan.
- Pre-register for your second semester classes.
- You must declare an area of interest prior to graduation. Meet with an advisor to determine the best program of study for your educational goals.
