Give to the MCC Foundation

Support Our Community Through Education

The MCC Foundation has been instrumental in supporting the MCC Tuition Guarantee Program since 1996. The program, which guarantees tuition to attend MCC for up to four semesters, is available to qualifying students who graduate from a high school located in Lauderdale County. Tuition Guarantee is funded by private investment and institutional support. Through Tuition Guarantee, MCC has invested more than $6 million in 4,661 students to ensure that life changing higher education opportunities are available to the citizens in the community we serve.
