Counseling Center Update - Juniors

Dear Juniors, Junior Parents & Guardians,


MCC Foundation Scholarships

I wanted to send out the link for some of the MCC Winter Scholarships. Some of the scholarships are specific to; type of student, program of interest or having to have MCC credits already.  Most are separated out into Auto/Diesel, Trades, Military, General Education, and Specific Type of Student. Here is the link to the MCC Winter Quarter Scholarships to share with students who may be thinking about starting in the winter.

Please remind students to go to OnToCollege.com and click on the homepage link to join our LIVE! Online Help Session with OTC master teachers. They can access this from home; no password is required. Encourage them to bring lots of questions!


ACT Review Video

An ACT 90-minute review video and accompanying test booklet will be available until October 28 for students preparing for the ACT test.  The video link appears in an Announcement box on your Canvas Dashboard. This review is not a replacement for taking the full OnToCollege ACT or ACT Fundamentals course; it is a great supplemental refresher for students who have previously completed an OTC course.  For students taking the October 28 ACT, this is a great quick review. You might show it to them in school or urge them to watch it before October 28.
