Why you should attend?

Due to our long associate with providing classes at or our military centers, MGCCC has helped students work class time around temporary duty assignments and interruptions for deployment. MGCCC has Center Directors who act as liaisons for the military at both the Navy and Air Force facilities and provide counseling, assessment, and registration assistance. Counselors at our campus locations review transfer credit/military credit and prepare SOC student agreements for active duty members and dependents.
