Your E-Portfolio Project
If you're seeking an AA, AS, AFA, AES, or AGE, you're required to complete an E-Portfolio. The purpose of the E-Portfolio is to ensure that students complete graded work in all five of the General Education goals. In addition, the E-Portfolio allows the college to assess student achievements in these areas and develop transformations in course design, teaching methods, textbooks, and scheduling to improve the college's offerings.
Need help? We've compiled a list of frequently asked questions about the E-Portfolio requirement and we've scheduled workshops to meet with you in person. Bring a flash drive with MCC coursework to be included in your portfolio.
