A Plea for a Tuition Waiver: Serving the Community Includes Helping Adjuncts and Their Families
4 years at MCC
Being adjunct faculty, I personally would like to go on to complete my bachelor’s degree. Having two associates degrees already, I believe it’s around a dozen classes or thereabouts needed to do so. With the current tuition costs, it’s financially better that I still work my regular day job and teach part time and not take classes due to the costs associated with completing my bachelor’s degree.
Any assistance MCC could offer would be certainly be an incentive . My wife and children have also expressed interest in attending MCC. My wife already has an associate’s in general studies but is interested in the graphic arts programs, and our son who is currently a sophomore in high school is looking to get his general studies classes completed prior to going forward with an electrical engineering degree. Our oldest daughter is currently enrolled at MCC, and with her own young family to take care of, any tuition discounts would also be an encouragement to them as well.
Being that MCC is in the higher education business, the knowledge and experience learned would directly benefit our community by having more well rounded and educated citizens
