Partnership for College and Career Success Programs
The Partnership for College and Career Success (PCCS) program (formerly known as Tech Prep) gives you a chance to start working on a professional certificate or associate's degree while you're still in high school. Statistically speaking, that means your job (and salary) prospects will be better when you graduate. Plus, depending on the program, a lot of the classes are at no cost to you while you're still a student!
The PCCS program can be taken as either articulated credit or dual credit
These courses are taught at your high school, and the credit you earn is "saved" or banked for you at MCC. You're awarded credit after you successfully complete additional coursework at MCC.
Check with your guidance counselor to see if your high school has an articulation agreement with MCC for any of the following credit courses:
- Automotive Technology
- Basic Accounting Procedures
- Basic Technical Drafting
- Computer Literacy
- Introduction to Computer Aided Drafting (CAD)
- Introduction to Horticulture
- Keyboarding II – Formatting
- Financial Accounting
- Principles of Retailing/Marketing
- Topics I – Early Childhood Education
When you participate in a dual credit program, you come to MCC during your regular school day to take classes. The credit you earn counts toward your high school graduation requirements, and it also counts as college credit at MCC. These college credits may also transfer to other community colleges and four-year schools. MCC offers these dual credit programs:
