For those concerned about the cost of going to college, Penny Jessup, student affairs specialist at the Muhlenberg County Campus, shares that MCC is the most affordable option for local residents. MCC tuition costs are less than 40% of the public four-year institutions and nearly three-fourths of MCC students receive federal financial aid. “Moreover, the Felix E. Martin, Jr. Foundation has generously provided additional financial help for students, age 25 and older with at least 30 college-level credit hours, to complete their associate’s degree. Students accepted in the Martin Scholars program receive a $250 cash stipend each semester they make satisfactory progress toward a degree at MCC. In addition, participants receive a $400 bonus when they complete their degree at MCC.” Students interested in becoming a Martin Scholar are invited to visit the Muhlenberg County Campus on Thursday, July 17, anytime from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. to learn more the program.
MCC’s fall semester classes start on Monday, August 18. Call Penny at 270-757-9881 or visit the Muhlenberg County Campus (406 West Everly Brothers Blvd., Central City) to get started.
