Morgan Community College

ADMISSIONS

Morgan Community College has an open admissions policy. In compliance with Colorado Community College System (CCCS) procedures (SP 4-10), it is the policy of the College to admit students who are 17 years of age or older.

New Student Orientation

We recommend all new students sign up for a New Student Orientation Session. Sessions are offered in both the Fall (Aug/Sept) and Spring (January) semesters. Dates are published in the Academic Calendar and Course Schedules for each term. Campus tours, assistance with computer log-ins, passwords, advising, terminology, timelines, expectations, study skills, and other information to help the new or returning student is presented. It is also a great time to meet some of the faculty, staff, and other new students. Call the Student Services Office to register at 542-3100.

Admission of New Students

New students who have never attended MCC must complete an online Admission Application found at www.MorganCC.edu. Online access is available on campus and at MCC Centers for those who do not have home internet access. Students are reminded to carefully and fully complete the Admission Application, as the information provided is used to determine tuition classification (in-state or out-of-state tuition rates.)

See TUITION CLASSIFICATION

Admission of Former Students/Re-admit

Former MCC students who wish to return to MCC after an absence of 12 months or more must apply for re-admission by completing an online Admission Application. Internet access is available on campus and at MCC Centers for those who do not have home internet access. Degree and certificate requirements in effect at the time of re-admission apply to readmitted students.

See CATALOG INFORMATION/WHICH CATALOG TO USE

Admission of Transfer Students

Students transferring to MCC from another college or university must file the following with the MCC Registrar/Records Office:

  1. An Admission Application with a declared program of study toward which transfer courses are to be evaluated.
  2. An official transcript of all credits earned from each college or university attended
    1. Official transcripts must be received by the MCC Registrar in the mail, directly from the other institution.
    2. Transcripts marked "Issued to Student" even if sealed are not considered official and will not be accepted nor evaluated, and will be discarded.

See STUDENT RECORDS AND TRANSCRIPTS for additional details on transferring credit to MCC

Admission of International Students

At this time MCC is not licensed by the federal government to accept international students and therefore, accepts no international student applications.

Admission of Underage Students (Under 17 Years Old)

Morgan Community College complies with the State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education (SBCCOE) policy to admit students who are 17 years of age or older. Students wishing to secure a waiver of the minimum age for admission must meet the following criteria:

  1. Qualified students must demonstrate academic readiness for college level work by meeting all state established ACCUPLACER® scores for college level English, reading and mathematics.
  2. Students should meet with the Director of Admissions to determine eligibility for admission and appropriateness of course selection, review college expectations, and complete the acknowledgment form which includes the MCC President’s approval.

Admission of Permanent Residents/Refugees

If an individual holds a Resident Alien card (I-551) or Arrival-Departure Record (I-94), or was admitted to the United States on a refugee, parolee, or political asylum status, that individual must present such documentation when applying for admission to Morgan Community College. Morgan Community College personnel will make a copy of the original documentation to accompany the application to assure prompt and proper processing.

Admission to Specific Programs

Admission to MCC does not assure acceptance into a particular course or program of study. Programs such as nursing have limited space and require special admission procedures. The program requirements in this catalog detail any specific program acceptance requirements.

See DEGREES AND CERTIFICATES

Selective Service Registration

Male students must indicate their Selective Service registration status prior to admission at Morgan Community College or any state supported institution of higher education. Enrollment will not be allowed to students who do not comply with Selective Service registration requirements. Individuals providing no or false information will be denied admission to the College. The certification is made on the MCC Admission Application. This is a one-time-only filing requirement unless the original certified item changes in any way. Students may register or obtain proof of Selective Service Registration at www.sss.gov

HB 1023 Documentation of Legal Presence

On August 1, 2006, the Colorado legislature enacted HB06S-1023 which requires that all persons eighteen years of age or older must provide proof that they are lawfully present in the United States prior to receiving public funds from the state. The law states all public institutions of higher education must verify each student’s legal presence within the United States before granting them in-state tuition. The state has enacted permanent rules that allow for alternative forms of ID to help ease the implementation.

The information below outlines the tools each public college or university must use in order to verify each student’s legal presence.

Persons this applies to:

  • Any person eighteen years or older seeking in-state tuition status or the COF stipend
  • Any person enrolled in the Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) and New Mexico/Colorado Reciprocity Agreement
  • Any person enrolled in Concurrent Enrollment courses or undergraduates that turn 18 years old during a current semester must provide proof of lawful presence before the beginning of the next semester to continue receiving the COF stipend. However, students in the Concurrent Enrollment program, and who are earning high school credits from their courses at an institution of higher education, can receive reimbursement from their school district, or payment in advance to the institution of higher education from their school district, for their postsecondary tuition without having to provide proof of lawful presence in the United States.

Lawful presence can be proved by supplying your college or university of choice with one of the following:

  • A valid Colorado driver’s license or state ID card
  • A United States Military card or military dependent’s ID card
  • A United States Coast Guard merchant mariner card
  • A Native American tribal document

The following identification documents are acceptable forms of identification pursuant to AG Order Number 2129-97 referenced in 2.1.3 of Department of Revenue 1 CCR 201-17 Rules for Evidence of Lawful Presence Effective August 1 2007.

A copy of one of the following documents is an acceptable form of identification:

  • A valid Driver’s License or Identification Card bearing applicant’s photograph from any one of the United States that requires evidence of lawful presence prior to issuance. Those states are: AL, AZ, AR, CA, CT, DE, DC, FL, GA,ID, IN, IA, KS, KY, LA, ME, MN, MS, MO, MT, NV, NH, NJ, NY, ND, OH, OK, PA, RI, SC, SD, VA, WV, and WY
  • Electronic Identification Indicator issued by the Department of Revenue
  • Applicant’s birth certificate from any state, the District of Columbia and all United States territories
  • United States Passport, except for "limited" passports, issued for less than five years
  • Report of Birth Abroad of a United States Citizen Form FS-20
  • Certificate of Birth issued by a foreign service post (FS-545) or Certification of Report of Birth (DS-1350)
  • Certification of Naturalization (N-550 or N-570)
  • Certificate of Citizenship (N-560 or N-561)
  • U. S. Citizen Identification Card (I-97) - last issued in 1974
  • Northern Mariana Identification Card
  • Statement provided by a US consular officer certifying that the individual is a US citizen
  • American Indian Card with classification code "KIC" and a statement on the back identifying US citizen members of the Texas Band of Kickapoos
  • Additional forms of identification documents are accepted and can be found in the Department of Revenue’s Permanent Rules for Lawful Presence at: http://www.revenue.state.co.us/EDO_dir/wrap.asp?incl=LawfulPresenceRules

AND

Sign an affidavit stating that you are a United States citizen or legal permanent resident or that you are otherwise lawfully present in the United States.

If you do not have a valid form of ID from the list above this is the process you must perform:

  • Sign an affidavit stating that you are a United States citizen or legal permanent resident or that you are otherwise lawfully present in the United States
  • Fill out a waiver given by the Department of Revenue which will be put through the Electronic Identification Indicator (EII) system to verify your lawful presence
  • The Department of Revenue may ask you to provide further proof, found within the emergency rules, that you are lawfully present within the United States for the verification process

The Department of Revenue will then contact you and inform you of their decision.
