MCC Receives Postsecondary Education Grant
Madisonville Community College (MCC) is pleased to announce that the Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education has awarded the college $3,736 to increase persistence and graduation for “near-completers” (students who have accumulated at least 75% of the credit hours needed for degree completion). Strategies to recover and re-enroll students who have already left college without completing a credential include utilizing a phone bank to contact “near-completers” and administering/evaluating career interest inventories so students can better align their interests and aptitudes with the correct academic program.
Jay Parrent, MCC Dean of Student Affairs, shared, “The project will provide students who may have hit a roadblock in one career path to identify other potential career options. MCC is blessed with several high-wage, high-demand programs so students can nearly always find the right fit.”
For additional information about the grant or to explore degree completion options, please contact Jay Parrent at (270) 824-8571.
