MOHAVE COUNTY – The path to an affordable education starts at Mohave Community College especially with the Early Start Scholarship. The scholarship provides Arizona high school juniors and seniors, GED recipients and home-school high school students the option for 10 free credit hours of college classes.

“The Early Start Scholarship can help high school students meet pre-requisite classes for health profession programs and general education classes that can be transferred to a university,” said Tiffany Gaffney, Recruitment Manager. “This opportunity allows them to explore career options at a low cost.”

Gaffney said this will assist with their intended program or a degree of their choosing, and spend less time in college after graduating high school. 

The scholarship can save over $800 in tuition. GED recipients are eligible for this scholarship the semester following completion of a GED and must utilize this scholarship within one calendar year of GED completion.

The College offers over 80 associate and degree options. Classes provide students with the skills, training and education they need for rewarding careers, and academic foundation to go on to a university for a bachelor’s degree and higher. Starting at MCC means smaller class sizes which provide students with one-on-one time with instructors and a hands-on learning experience.

To get started, students can meet with an advisor, a student services technician or a recruiter for help. For more information about the Early Start Scholarship, visit www.Mohave.edu/early-start or call MCC Connect at 866-664-2832.
