Introduction

Mohave Community College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA). The actual nursing program is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission. The other various health related careers, such as EMT, surgical technology, and dental hygiene are also fully accredited by their designated accrediting bodies.

Mohave Community College (MCC) has four different locations: Bullhead City, Kingman, North Mohave, and Lake Havasu City. In fact, the city of Kingman is known as the “heart of historic route 66.” The college was founded in 1971, but did not receive NCA accreditation until 1981. Since its inception, Mohave has undergone radical growth in numbers, from serving 1000 students, to about 13000 in recent times. Mohave’s values as an educational institution are focused on, “building a better tomorrow through learning, accountability for the future, integrity, responsiveness, and quality, providing a supportive environment, and having fun.”

Through this program students are also guaranteed admission into the BSN program. AZU will count up to 75 credits earned at Mohave towards their degree.

Financial Aid

Mohave Community College Scholarships

There are many scholarships available to students looking to attend Mohave Community College. Most of these scholarships fall under the category of private or academic scholarships. The private scholarships were made available by the Mohave Community College Foundation and is donor funded. To name a few, there are: the ACE scholars for individuals affiliated with the Fort Mojave Indian Tribe, the Betty Newcomer Memorial Fund for Nurses Training, for Lake Havasu City residents in particular, the Ed Redman Memorial for those who are located on the Bullhead City campus, and the ING Americas Scholarship for Women, which is for women who work at low wage jobs.

FAFSA

Remember to also fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, FAFSA, so that your school can determine your eligibility for federal aid, including grants, loans, and the federal work study program. Even if you think you will not be eligible for financial aid, you should still complete the FAFSA as you may qualify for a Perkins or Direct Loan whose interest rates and grace periods are much more generous than any private loan you may be lucky enough to find.

Students

Student life at Mohave Community College is highly active. Students have the opportunity to participate in a host of clubs including the Computer Club, Student Activities Council, Phi Theta Kappa, and ASL Flying Fingers.

Membership in these student run organizations and associations can lead to lifelong relationships that can turn into networking opportunities in the future.

Student Enrollment Demographics

Additional School Information

College Preparatory Services

  • ESL/ELA: Individuals seeking to learn English will benefit well by enrolling in Mohave Community College’s English as a Second Language/English Language Acquisition classes. These classes are offered on all of the college campuses, so students can choose which campus to attend depending on one’s work schedule or proximity to home. Prior to being placed in a class, each prospective student will undergo an assessment to learn which level will be the proper placement. Students are either placed in advanced, intermediate, or beginning. These courses are also free.
  • ABE: For individuals who want to earn a GED, freshen up on their basic math, reading, and writing skills, this program may prove convenient. It is offered also at every campus.
  • Continuing Education: Through the Communication Outreach division, what is popularly referred to as community education or continuing action on other community college campuses, community members can take courses in a variety of subject areas on every campus within the Mohave system. These courses cover a range of topics, including: arts and crafts, professional development, children activities, test preparation, personal interests, languages, and optimization of workforce skills. These lifelong learning opportunities are essential to the communities in which they are located.

SBCD

The Small Business Development Center (SBCD) is a site where small business owners can venture in order to receive free advice about business plans, start up cost, and marketability. Visitors will learn about software applications such as QuickBooks, participate in workshops, and have access to personal business counseling sessions. Workshops cover subjects related to OSHA, business loans, and creating emergency action plans, for example.

Academic Advisement

For freshman students unsure about the path they would like to take after high school, advisors are available to meet with them and answer any questions they may have. Frequently a student will self advise or fall into any major and end up unhappy because they did not seek out the right counsel. Advisors are there to act as guides. They welcome new students and embrace current students alike. Advisors are willing to meet with students regarding schedule changes, career plans, class selection, and general advisement about credit allocation, transfer requirements, and graduation.

There are other resources available to students as well. Mohave offers Supplemental Instruction (SI) on all of its campuses. Students who need additional tutoring in any of the basic skills such as reading, math, or writing are encouraged to seek help through SI. The best part about SI is that you will be tutored by faculty members who are familiar with the Mohave system in terms of course offerings and expectations, hence there should not be any problem receiving help or being misunderstood by the tutor who probably teaches the same class in which you are interested in receiving help.

Dual Enrollment

Like many other colleges, Mohave Community College offers Dual Enrollment for high school students. This program permits high school students to take certain college level courses. Through the Dual Enrollment Program students are allowed to earn for both high school and college at the same time. In order to participate one has to be a high school junior. Prior to enrolling, parents and guidance counselors should evaluate the emotional maturity of the student in question, in order to not overwhelm him or her at such as an early stage in their academic career.
