What you need to know about MCU

You believe in your child’s potential. So do we.
Our small campus opens up the world to students. They solve problems in real-world situations, develop close relationships with people from across the globe, and gain the experiences to be successful and well-rounded.

We nudge students to greatness.

Our degrees add up.
Every program confers two degrees: an associate degree as a midway milestone and a bachelor’s degree as a launch pad to careers.

Students can even add an MBA to any four-year degree with just one extra year of study. This is a smart way to gain a top credential while you’re still in the student groove.

We push our students to graduate in four years.
We work with students to set their course plans, help them stay on track and get them into the classes they need to graduate on time. If they do their part, we’ll do ours. We guarantee it.

We bring learning to life.
MCU is a natural fit for A students. But it’s also good for students ready to blossom. Here students gain professional skills they can put to work in real time through internships, access to industry experts, connections with supportive faculty, behind-the-scenes site visits and other career-driving experiences.

Your student’s safety is our top priority.
Campus safety officers are on duty 24 hours a day. We also maintain a campus alert system and encourage students, parents, faculty and staff to sign up to receive alerts. Learn more.
