  • How can I make sure that I only take classes required for my degree?

  • How does the partnership between MCC and NAU work?

    MCC furnishes the student with their freshman and sophomore course work which is then transferred into NAU. NAU furnishes the student with their junior and senior course work and awards the bachelor’s degree upon completion of all requirements. Consult your NAU Academic Advisor for details as some programs allow up to 90 credits of additional community college course work and require fewer NAU hours.

  • How long does it take to complete a bachelor’s degree?

    A bachelor's degree is designed to be a four-year degree program, but the length of time it will take to complete degree requirements will vary depending on how many credits you take each semester. Generally, students need to successfully complete 30 units per year in order to complete their program within a four year period. This calculation includes credits earned at both community college and university levels.

  • What are the advantages of participating in the MCC2NAU Partnership Program?
    • Enhanced academic advising and transfer support. Advisors at MCC and NAU work together to keep you on track
    • University benefits while taking community college courses. You qualify for an ID card that gives you access to NAU’s Cline Library, campus cultural and athletic events, and student discounts
    • A seamless transition from the community college to the university and a waiver of the $25 application fee
    • Exemption from freshman admission requirements with the successful completion of an Associate's degree or AGEC.
  • What is MCC?s Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC), and should I earn an AGEC while at the community college?

    Arizona community colleges and public universities agree that students who have completed a community college AGEC will have earned all 35 liberal studies credits required by the state's universities. If you ever intend to continue your education beyond the community college, an AGEC provides a great opportunity to take classes that will transfer directly, and without question, into a bachelor’s program. All NAU bachelor’s degrees require completion of liberal studies requirements.
