About Mohave Community College

Mission Statement

MCC serves our communities, empowering students to succeed through innovative pathways and quality education.


Improving lives.  Improving communities.  Bridging possibility to purpose and prosperity.

Mohave Community College serves students throughout western Arizona and neighboring communities in California, Nevada and Utah. We have campuses in Kingman, Lake Havasu City, Bullhead City and Colorado City, and an extensive online degree program. 

 The college has four primary academic pathways called Areas of Interest

  • General Education & Transfer
  • Health & Public Services
  • Career & Technical Education
  • Corporate & Community Education

Under these Areas of Interest students have access to dozens of associate degree and certificate options, as well as many short-term, high skills non-credit workforce training and lifelong education classes. MCC students receive the skills training and education needed for rewarding careers, as well as the academic foundation to transfer their MCC associate degree credits to a university where they may enter as a junior and complete a bachelor’s degree. The college has seamless credit transfers to all the universities in Arizona and nearly twenty university partners outside the state.

MCC is the region’s premier workforce training center and partners with business, industry and government leaders throughout Arizona to ensure graduates are well-prepared to enter the workforce with desired professional and industry-specific skills. The college is a regional economic driver with an annual economic impact of more than $200 million throughout Mohave County. MCC strives to meet the growing regional needs of business and industry, and provides opportunities for small business development, as well as professional development for employees in every business sector. 

The college educational programs are consistently rated among the best and most affordable in the state by industry publications. In-state tuition at MCC is just $81 per credit hour, which is the most affordable in Arizona, and when combined with MCC’s high-quality academic and workforce training programs it is easy to see why MCC is frequently rated a Best Value College.

The college is also the home to Bighorns Soccer, the first college athletic team based in northwestern Arizona.  You can keep up with latest news and information about the men’s and women’s teams at Athletics.Mohave.edu

Filling out the college application is free and you can get started at Apply.Mohave.edu.  If you need assistance please contact an Admissions Specialist. You may also reach the college at 1-866-MOHAVECC. 

We also have an extensive Community & Corporate Education division, which offers non-credit (no grades) classes.  The Community Education classes are often called leisure studies and may include everything from arts & crafts to welding basics.  Corporate Education classes help build professional skills, some refer to them as soft skills, which are desired by employers.  The college is also home to the Small Business Development Center, which can help you start a business, including developing a business plan and applying for a business loan.

Individuals who would like to support students through donations to college scholarship funds can do so through the Mohave Community College Foundation.

10 Reasons to Choose MCC


MCC strives to make college affordable for everyone.  We encourage everyone to fill out the FAFSA because you may qualify for a grant that covers everything. MCC also has scholarships and payment plans. Those seeking a bachelor’s degree should start first at MCC and then transfer to a university as a junior.  This will save on average $15,000 in tuition alone, plus living expenses if you live at home while attending MCC.


MCC offers more than 70 associate degrees and certificates tailored to provide you with the knowledge and skills expected by business, industry, government and educational centers around the world.  Our class schedules are flexible to fit your life style.


100% of MCC’s full-time faculty have at least a master’s degree, and approximately 30 percent have earned their doctorate. In addition to these professionals, the college has more than 300 highly experienced and dedicated associate faculty.

Personal Attention

The in-class student-to-teacher ratio at MCC averages 13-to-1; that means you get hands-on learning and one-on-one time with instructors. You are not a number at MCC, you are an individual our faculty and employees care about.

Tools for success

MCC provides students the right tools to succeed.  Students will learn in hi-tech educational facilities, with cutting edge instructional support materials. Our Allied Health Sciences and Career and Technical Education training labs are designed to be as close to real-life industry settings as you can get.

Smooth transfer of credits

When students successfully complete an Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC) degree, admission into an Arizona state university is guaranteed!  MCC works closely with our university partners to ensure credits earned while obtaining an MCC degree will transfer smoothly to the universities in Arizona and many other universities across the country.

Preparatory services

If you don’t think you are ready for college, we can help. Our Pre-college Studies division is dedicated to helping those who need fundamental education skills to prepare for college course work.  You can go from earning your GED to a college degree right here at MCC.

Enhanced earning potential

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, those who complete an associate’s degree will earn, on average, 33 percent more than high school graduates.  Research shows an MCC graduate will earn approximately $725,000 more in life than a person who only has a high school diploma.

Great support services

MCC offers various support services: free tutoring, 24/7 counseling, computer labs, accommodations for documented disabilities and more.


We recognize that there is more to life than studying. Student clubs, on-campus activities, classroom experiences and field study all offer the chance to meet new people, make new friends, inspire others and enhance your life.
