For students uncertain of their career goals, our Liberal Arts and General Studies degree programs help you “test the waters” in many subjects. Classes are designed to fit into anyone’s busy work and family life.
Applying to MxCC and registering for classes are easy—both can be done in eight simple steps (for degree-seeking students).
Becoming a Student
- In your application you will be asked to Create an Account
- After applying you will be able to make any edits to your application and upload documents to your MxCC Application Dashboard using the email and password entered.
MxCC uses your high school transcript, SAT/ACT Scores (if taken), and any previous college transcripts to determine your eligibility for courses at the college.
All students entering MxCC will need to submit a high school transcript.
- You can call your high school guidance office and request they send an official transcript to MxCC via Naviance, Email (Mx-EnrollmentServices) or via mail to: Admission’s Office- MxCC- 100 Training Hill Road, Middletown, CT
- You can also upload a copy of your unofficial transcript to your MxCC Application Dashboard.
- If you completed the GED for high school, upload your official or unofficial copy of your GED test results to your MxCC Application Dashboard .
- Those with a 165 for Mathematical Reasoning and Reasoning for Language Arts place into college-level math and English.
If you have taken the SAT or ACT, you can request these scores online to be sent to MxCC, Admission’s Office.
If you have taken Advanced Placement (AP) courses in high school or CLEP Exams, you can also request these scores to be sent to MxCC, Admission’s Office.
If you have courses taken at another college or received college credit during high school, you can request transcripts two ways:
- Sign into your previous college’s student portal and request an official transcript
- Contact the Registrar at your previous college and request an official transcript.
English Challenge Essay and Math Placement Exam
- If you do not have any of the above placements or it has been over 5 years since you completed high school (and you never completed college-level English or math), email Mx-Accuplacer to discuss further placement options.
- Please include information regarding when you graduated high school and what your last English and math courses were.
Students still in high school and looking to take High School Partnership courses, CCP courses, or complete classes while still in high school and do not have SAT/ACT scores or prior college coursework should email Mx-Accuplacer to discuss further placement options.
- In your email, please identify yourself as a high school student and include your high school’s name (or note you are a home school student).
Proof of immunizations is part of the application process.
Adequate immunizations include:
- Measles, Mumps, & Rubella (MMR): Two doses of measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine administered at least one month apart.
- Varicella (Chicken Pox): Two doses or provide certification from physician that student has had disease.
- Titers can also be used to verify proof of immunizations (some walk-in clinics may be able to assist with this request)
To submit proof of these immunizations:
- Contact your healthcare provider and request they complete the MxCC Immunization Form (pdf) or submit a copy of your immunizations from your medical record/healthcare provider documentation.
- Once completed, upload the signed form and/or any attachments from your healthcare provider to your MxCC Application Dashboard.
In order to minimize both the school and state-wide health impact of measles, the Connecticut Legislature passed SHB 7171 AAC Proof of Immunization Against Measles, Mumps, and Rubella for Certain Persons at Institutions of Higher Education. This bill became effective July 1, 1989. This law states that if an individual was born in the United States after December 31, 1956, and enrolls as a part-time or full-time matriculated student at an institution of higher education in Connecticut, the individual must present either a certificate of immunization against measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella, or laboratory evidence demonstrating said immunity. Students will not be permitted to register without proper immunization documentation.
To request an exemption:
- Complete the MxCC Immunization Form (pdf) and follow the instructions on page 2 of the form.
- Once signed, upload form to the MxCC Application Dashboard.
Exemptions to this requirement include:
- Individuals born before January 1, 1957
- Laboratory confirmation of immunity to such disease
- Documentation from a physician stating that the student is medically contraindicated from receiving such vaccine
- Documentation from the student that such immunization is contrary to his/her religious beliefs
- Documentation from a physician or director of health that the student has had a confirmed case of such disease
- A student’s health and that of the campus community depend upon compliance with this legislation.
New Student Orientation is required for all new-incoming and transfer students. It provides a brief overview of the college’s support services and instructions for your MyCommNet, student college portal.
Once you have completed the modules in New Student Orientation, you can complete the New Student Orientation Advising Form (located at after module 6), which will connect you with an advisor on our campus.
You can pay for your courses in multiple ways.
- Financial Aid
All new and current students must fill out the FAFSA form to be considered for financial aid. You should complete this important step each year.
- Business Office
If you are not using financial aid or have a remaining balance on your account, you can pay in full online or set up a payment plan.
Now that you have completed the above steps, you can take advantage of our free resources to help better prepare you for your semester.
