  • Proof of Johnson County residency. This may be any documentation which includes your name and address and is dated at least six months prior to the semester for which you are enrolled.

6. Complete and sign the JCCC cooperative student contract, available only through the JCCC Admissions office. It is your responsibility to retain a copy for your records and to forward a copy to the appropriate MCC Business office.

  • Johnson County residents are defined as students eligible for in-state, in-county tuition per the guidelines outlined at Proof of residency is required.
  • You will be eligible for Johnson County resident rates only when step 6 has been completed. Until that time, you will be charged the MCC out-of-state tuition.

7. Pay tuition, lab fees and insurance at MCC by their designated payment deadline.

  • MCC payment arrangements are required at the time of enrollment. Within seven days of enrollment, students must contact one of the MCC business offices to make arrangements to get on a third party contract and pay their portion of term fees.
  • Only those courses not offered at JCCC and required for your specific degree are included in this agreement. If you elect to take a general education course (i.e., Comp I, speech, math, CPCA, etc.) at the cooperative school, you will be responsible for paying the out-of-state tuition.

Please read the following information carefully:

  • The JCCC contract is valid through the course of your study. A new contract need not be completed each semester.
  • You must apply for and receive all your financial aid through MCC. The MCC institutional code is 002484.
  • JCCC has the right to limit enrollment in the cooperative program and can make changes in the program at any time.

  • Courses taken at MCC do not fall under the JCCC Brown & Gold Club benefits. You will be responsible for paying the full JCCC tuition rate.

If you choose to complete the Missouri Constitution requirement before you have been officially accepted into the MCC program, you will be responsible for paying the MCC out-of-state tuition for the course.
