MCC Course Modalities

Accelerated Courses

Accelerated courses cover the same quantity of quality content as other courses but are completed in a shorter time frame, often five-weeks. Accelerated courses move through the course content very rapidly. Students must be prepared to concentrate on course requirements and devote time to study. Many such courses are designed for working professionals.

Blended Courses

A mix of online and remote learning involving weekly course activities through a web-based course management system as well as live videoconferencing at least every other week.

Hybrid Courses

A 50/50 mix of online and on-campus learning.  Typically, students can expect the majority of class “lecture” to take place in the asynchronous online environment, while discussions and class activities occur during on-campus meetings.


Face-to-Face learning at an MCC campus or center location.  Class meeting days and times are 100% in-person and based on the number of lecture hours, lab hours and credit hours assigned to the course.

Online Courses

Asynchronous distance learning through a web-based course management system and other online learning tools as needed. Students can expect weekly course activities and assignment deadlines.

Students who are not F-1 students and whose primary language is not English need to take the Accuplacer assessment to determine course placement. Call 531-622-2400 to get started. The TOEFL is not required. There are federal regulations specific to F-1 students and online classes. Contact International Student Services at 531-622-2281 or iss@mccneb.edu for guidelines.

Remote Delivery Courses

Synchronous distance learning using Zoom or other videoconferencing software.  Class meeting days and times are based on lecture, lab and credit hours in the same way as on-campus classes.
