MCC Among Top 100 Degree Producers
Manatee Community College (MCC) was named among the top 100 associate degree producers in the nation in two categories in a special report published in July by Community College Week magazine. MCC ranked 47th in the "liberal arts and sciences, general students, and humanities" listing and 67th in the "all disciplines - nonminority" listing.
The national biweekly magazine for community, technical and junior colleges listed two- and four-year institutions. Results are based on data gathered by the U.S. Department of Education.
It was noted in the magazine that recent American Association of Community Colleges data show that 46 percent of all U.S. undergraduates are community college students.
Summer enrollment at MCC increased 15 percent in the number of load hours, double the state average, and nearly 13 percent in head count. MCC has awarded an annual average of 1,015 degrees and certificates for the past 10 years.
