The Passport Program is a learning community for students interested in starting at MCC and then transferring to a four-year institution.
This community consists of a group of up to 25 students who will complete their first academic year of college together. Students will attend full time during the day, taking three courses each quarter, completing a total of 40.5 (27 semester) transferable quarter hours.
A learning community is a supportive, cooperative environment in which students complete courses together as a group. Research shows that students perform better academically when they learn together in a group. Teaching and learning are also enhanced when students, faculty and counselors work together.
