Spring semester at MCC draws near

January 5, 2019

BULLHEAD CITY — The spring semester is just around the corner for Mohave Community College.

Classes begin Jan. 14, and students may enroll up until that date.

Anyone who is enrolled but does not show up for the first week of classes will be dropped and have to appeal to the campus dean to be let back into those classes.

Those who have enrolled but have not taken care of payment arrangements by Saturday may be dropped from their classes and have to re-enroll. MCC said it is alerting about 750 students who are in that situation.

Tuition remains at $81 per credit hour. It has not gone up in four years.

College spokesman James Jarman said enrollment is stable compared to the past few years.

“We’ve been averaging about 4,000 students per semester and the most recent number shows we have approximately 4,157 students,” he said

That number does not include several hundred students in non-credit community and corporate education courses, Jarman said.

The Bullhead City campus typically has 1,300 to 1,500 students enrolled.

Arizona General Education Curriculum university transfer classes and general education associate degree programs still have space for students; nearly all of those classes are offered online.

MCC said getting AGEC work done there essentially gives a student 30 to 35 university credits, and guarantees admission to Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University or the University of Arizona, provided he or she maintains at least a 2.5 grade point average.

Getting an associate degree from MCC knocks out 60 to 65 credits, the college says, and saves about $30,000 in tuition and housing costs, compared to completing the first two years of a bachelor’s degree at one of the state’s three public universities.

Allied health, nursing and Career & Technical Education courses are very popular, Jarman said, but all have space available for new students.

Offerings on the Bullhead City campus include dental hygiene, radiologic technology, nursing, welding, dental assisting and culinary arts.

Anyone interested in applying may do so online at www.mohave.edu or call 1-866-MOHAVECC (866-664-2822) for assistance or to speak with an admissions specialist or advisor.

Twelve-week classes start Feb. 4.
