The Partnership for College and Career Success (PCCS) program 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:
Courses are taught at your high school, and the credit you earn is "saved" or banked for you at MCC. Credit is awarded 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 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
With dual credit programs, you come to MCC during your regular school day to take classes, and 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. The following is a list of Dual Credit Programs offered at MCC:
