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.
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.
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
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.

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

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

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