Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Very affordable, great payment plans!
Megan from Bloomfield, CT
MCC is great almost PRIMARILY because you get an excellent education and all of the perks of a university for a fraction of the cost. MCC is rapidly becoming one of Connecticut's top community colleges.
Kelsey from Manchester, CT
After I used 2 scholarships after high school, I paid for MCC on my own as a part/full time employee of a small grocery store. Anyone can pay for MCC's tuition as long as they can budget their money and apply for financial aid.
Elizabeth from Colchester, CT
Personally, I did not have to come out of pocket for school. The school offered me a generous amount of financial aid. The money that you do not use can either go into a direct deposit account, or you can receive a check back in the mail. The school is a little pricey when it comes to cafeteria food, but it is all worth while.
