Select Courses Offered Tuition-Free
Registration is currently underway for Morgan Community College (MCC) summer courses. Summer semester begins May 31, 2022, with most courses running in eight or ten-week sessions. Classes are offered in-person, Hyflex (combination of in-person and Zoom), or remote real-time (classes are taught in real-time via Zoom). Select courses will be offered tuition-free for in-state students.
“MCC continues with the tradition of providing a select number of core courses to students each summer that are tuition-free,” said Dr. Curt Freed, MCC President. “These summer courses are a great opportunity for students to get an affordable way to accelerate their degree or certificate program.”
Tuition-free classes for summer semester include Statistics (MAT 1260), Anatomy & Physiology (BIO 2101), Colorado History (HIS 2135), World Mythology (HUM 1015), and Nurse Aide Skills and Clinical (NUA 1001/1070). Students interested in enrolling in tuition-free classes must complete a simple application and pay related course fees.
Nurse Aide (NUA 1001) classes begin on June 7, and are offered on the Fort Morgan campus on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, with clinicals (NUA 1070) to be announced. Students enrolled in this program will prepare for work in acute care and long-term care facilities as a Nurse Aide, where they will perform duties related to personal patient care. Students who successfully complete the program are eligible to apply to take the National Nurse Aide Assessment Program certification exams.
“Currently there is a high demand for skilled Nurse Aides who want to provide care and a better quality of life for patients,” stated Lynne Collins, MCC Health Professions Faculty. “The Nurse Aide program is a six-week course that prepares students with strong skills and confidence for a successful career in the medical industry.”
Recent high school graduates can also take advantage of the MCC Promise Award. The Promise Award provides eligible 2020-2022 high school graduates throughout the MCC service area a scholarship and/or grant of up to $2,000 for full-time enrollment (minimum of twelve credits) or $1,000 for at least half-time enrollment (minimum of six credits).
