Continuing Veteran Students

Congratulations on earning your degree at MCC! After completing their degree at Mohave Community College, many of our Veteran Students continue on to earn their Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees at universities. Mohave Community College has transfer agreements with universities like Northern Arizona University, Arizona State University, University of Arizona, and many more. Often local students wish to receive Bachelor’s degrees without moving out of the area and choose to take classes “on ground” with MCC while completing university courses online. This can allow us to assist in certifying these students for up to full housing allowances while they work towards their Bachelor’s degree. Contact us if you are interested in more information.
