MCCC Student Housing Rates for 2024-2025
For non-traditional students with extended 18-week stays:
Future Reduced Housing Rates
If you decide to transfer to Rider University for your bachelor’s degree after earning your associate degree at Mercer, Rider will continue the discounted room and board rate for up to two additional years.
Bronc Bucks included with the meal plan carry over from the Fall to the Spring semester and then expire at the end of the academic year. Any remaining meals or Bronc Bucks not used prior to the end of the Spring semester are forfeited.
MCCC students not electing to purchase a meal plan may use a credit card or Personal Bronc Bucks in conjunction with the GrubHub app to order food on campus. The student will be required to pay the door rate + tax.
Financial Aid Benefit
For students who may be eligible for financial aid, the MCCC Financial Aid office will recalculate the cost of MCCC attendance to take into consideration the Rider room and board costs. This will increase students’ eligibility for financial assistance and support access to a college residential experience that enhances their overall educational experience.
