Admissions

Be bold. Be different. In other words, be yourself. While your academic performance is important, we consider all of your strengths. So tell us everything. We’re listening.

Whether you’re in high school, hoping to transfer, or an international student, we can guide and support you throughout the application process. 

We also welcome non-matriculating students to complete pre-requisites for graduate school or to take courses just for the sake of learning. If you were a good high school student, but had a difficult first semester at college, learn about our reStart program. And summer visiting students may enroll in courses while on break to transfer back to their home institution.

Get a head start and take courses at MMC in your junior or senior year of high school

We offer rolling admissions, and we’re ready when you are. 

  • How big are classes?

    Our classes average about 18, with the largest class being only about 30. Some programs cap classes at 10 or 12. MMC does not have any large lecture halls and professors teach all classes instead of teaching or graduate assistants as in many large universities. The student to faculty ratio is 18:1.

  • Does MMC have an Honors program?

    At MMC, we have multiple honors programs and organizations to suit the many ways our students achieve. From honor societies to Honors Day, we offer several ways to challenge and recognize our most exceptional students.

  • What are the minimum requirements to be admitted?

    MMC does not have a stated minimum as we have a holistic review process. This means that we will look at many factors for admission, such as GPA and level of courses you have taken, SAT/ACT, recommendation letters, how well you write based on the writing section on the SAT/ACT test scores and/or your essay, and overall interest in MMC.

     

  • What do I do if I am denied to MMC, but want to be considered again?

    The College renders admission decisions based on all information submitted and decisions are most always final. We do allow students the opportunity to appeal the decision by writing a letter to the Dean of Admission explaining why they should be reconsidered. This letter must be accompanied with additional documentation that was not available at the time of our initial evaluation. This could include additional grades or SAT/ACT scores, a recommendation or letter from an academic officer or teacher explain your circumstances in greater detail, or something that you have accomplished since the decision that could support your success at MMC. Keep in mind that the majority of appeals are not approved, but we offer this option in case we missed something very compelling. Another path to enroll is to enroll in classes in a local community college or other college in which you have been accepted and transfer to MMC in the Spring or following Fall semester. We accept many transfer students each term and look at your college work primarily at that point. If your test scores were low or your high school GPA was not all that it could have been, this is a great option to show you can be successful at the college level. If you are already in college, we recommend that you continue your coursework at your current college and transfer when your GPA is a bit higher. 

  • What are the application deadlines and how long does it take to get a decision?

    Admission to MMC is on a rolling basis which means that there is not a set deadline to submit your application. We do encourage you to apply early or before the end of your Fall semester in high school. Transfer students should apply as soon as they begin their final semester in their previous college. Once all required documents are received, it will take 2-3 weeks to receive your decision or a request for additional information.
