Why take summer classes at MCC?

Do you want to graduate faster from college? Why not take a summer class or two at Montcalm Community College to get ahead?

MCC offers nearly 100 classes this summer in a variety of formats including in-person, online, hybrid and live online.

Maybe you want to get some of your general education requirements done or get a prerequisite out of the way for a class you want to take in the fall?

Popular courses during the spring and fall semesters usually mean jam-packed classrooms. This can make it tough to get a good seat, pay attention to lectures, ask questions and have one-on-one discussions with your instructor. Because fewer students typically opt for summer sessions, it often means smaller class sizes and more one-on-on attention for summer students.

Plus, with four learning formats, you’ll be able to connect with your instructors and classmates in a way that’s comfortable for you.

Another bonus is that summer classes are just eight weeks long instead of 16, so you’ll still have lots of time to have fun with your friends and family.

If you want to take an online class, MCC has waived its prerequisite course GNST 115 - Effective Online Learning, to reduce barriers for you to get into the class you want.

“We are doing everything we can to support our students,” said MCC Vice President for Academic Affairs Rob Spohr. “For summer, we have added several sections of general education courses and courses that are highly transferrable to other colleges and universities. We’re trying to reduce barriers for students and offer the high-quality instruction they deserve.”
