November 2022

MOHAVE COUNTY – Mohave Community College has started signing students up for spring and summer semesters, which start Jan. 17 and May 22, respectively.  

Students are encouraged to enroll in the classes they want and need as soon as possible because many classes tend to fill up quickly. Early registration also allows the college time to determine if more courses need to be added to meet the demand. Classes are being held on campus, online and remotely via Zoom. 

MCC recently installed a new registration portal that will make registering for classes much easier for students. The public can also search the classes that are available for each semester by visiting the college website, then clicking the Academics tab, and then selecting Search Available Classes.

This year, due to high demand, two College programs expanded to other campuses. Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning/Refrigeration is now offered on the Kingman campus in addition to the Bullhead City and Lake Havasu Campuses. The Culinary program has also branched off from Bullhead City Campus to the North Mohave Campus in Colorado City where it is offered as non-credit, two-day classes.  

MCC strives to make college affordable for everyone and has kept tuition at $81 per credit hour for nearly a decade. This low tuition rate, combined with scholarships and financial aid helps make a college education attainable for everyone throughout Mohave County. Senior citizens also get a 50% tuition reduction in all the college for-credit courses.   

The college has three primary academic pathways for students, called Areas of Interest:

• Workforce & Regional Development 

• General Education & Transfer 

• Health, Public Safety & Human Services Professions 

Under these three pathways students have access to more than 80 associate degree and professional certificate options. 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 public universities in Arizona, and nearly two-dozen other university partners.

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. 

Once a person fills out the free application to become an MCC student, the college student services team will be in contact to help guide them through the admissions and enrollment process, including tuition assistance options.

It appears this is not simply a one-time budget gap but a deep-seated structural problem with the university spending far more than it brings in each year.
