Student Support

MDC offers a full “college experience” comparable to other leading institutions of higher education. From student government to intercollegiate athletics, student-edited newspapers and literary magazines, internships and study abroad programs, it's all right here.

There are advisors on every campus that will help you decide on a course of study, stay on track with your classes, and plan your future beyond MDC. Each campus also has pre-college advisors and a New Student Center that functions as the first point of contact for prospective or new students and organizes individual meetings, open houses and orientation sessions prior to each semester.
