Careful planning is essential when taking courses to complete a program, to earn a two-year degree, or to transfer to a four year college. Professional advisors and faculty advisors are available throughout the year to help students with educational planning. Students are assigned an advisor in their area of interest during the admissions process. Advisors can be changed at any time. MPCC requires an advisor’s signature before registering for classes the first time. Advisor signatures may continue to be needed for certain programs and/or classes. Students may also talk confidentially with an advisor about academic difficulties.
Information on MPCC diplomas and degrees are available on each campus as well as on CampusWeb. In addition, transfer guide sheets are available listing MPCC courses appropriate for specific majors at many other colleges and universities.
Preparing For Transfer
It is important for students to know whether the courses they are registering for meet the degree requirements of the institution to which they intend to transfer. Transfer planning starts with initial registration at MPCC and continues until the student’s graduation. Professional advisors and faculty advisors assist students in planning the appropriate classes for registration.
Transfer Reminders: Many colleges will accept only classes with a grade of “C” or better. Most colleges will not transfer in more than 66 credits from a 2-year college. Courses with a prefix of less than 1000 are considered to be developmental and do not transfer.
The MPCC Registrar is custodian of student records. Inquiries pertaining to student’s records may be made in person at any MPCC Welcome Center, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 308-535-3774.
