Receives $74,185 Grant for Adults Returning to College
The college has received a $74,185 one-year grant from the
New Jersey Commission on Higher Education to contact and re-engage previous
students who left in good academic standing. The grant seeks to increase
the number of New Jersey students who complete college degrees or certificates.
MCCC has identified a pool of 2,000 students who will be contacted. Some
students may be eligible for forgiveness of back tuition debt so they
can re-start their education. Participants must have attended the college
within 5-7 years and have earned 30 or more credits with a GPA of 2.75
or greater. Counselors will be advising students on how to make the best
one of four colleges receiving the funding from the New Jersey Commission
on Higher Education. The grant is federally funded and designed to create
programs that can be self-sustaining.
