Tobacco Policy

Tobacco use is prohibited on all college grounds.

Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

The primary purpose of CEUs is to provide a permanent record of the educational accomplishments of an individual who has completed a non-credit class. CEUs are especially important to those who seek to maintain a credential, such as a real estate license. One CEU is defined as 10 hours of participation in a planned continuing education experience organized under responsible sponsorship, capable direction and qualified instruction. CEUs do not apply toward college degree requirements.

Social Security Number Privacy Policy

The State of Michigan Public Act 454 of 2004 establishes regulations to help ensure the privacy of student Social Security numbers. This includes the proper use, disclosure and disposal of student Social Security numbers. The Community College District of Monroe County, Mich. will follow procedures to ensure that these requirements are met. For procedural information, please see the Web site at www.monroeccc.edu.

Disabilities

If you have a documented disability for which an accommodation may be appropriate, please contact the Learning Assistance Lab at 734.384.4167 for an appointment.

In order to ensure your child’s safety and the integrity of our classes, we ask that you not bring your child with you to class. For children registered in a Lifelong Learning class, those 15 years of age or younger may not be dropped off in front of college buildings. Parents must accompany their children to and from the classroom.

Holds

Students who have outstanding tuition, library fines or other indebtedness to MCCC will not be allowed to register until the debt is paid. MCCC will not release a transcript if the student has a financial hold.
