Getting Your Students Registered

Please encourage your students to register early!

    • Have them check their keyboarding, internet, computer, time management, learning styles, note-taking skills and more. We highly recommend all new students complete this free assessment.

Online Tools

Blackboard is where students access their online courses. Students will need to know their MPCC CampusWeb/Blackboard login information. This is sent to them via U.S. Postal Service when they first enroll in courses at MPCC.

CampusWeb. Each enrolled student receives access to their own CampusWeb webpage. Students are required to know how to login to their CampusWeb as this is where they will receive grades and where they may access their college email. Faculty utilizes CampusWeb email addresses when communicating with students. After enrolling in their first course at MPCC students are mailed via USPS their CampusWeb login information. Please keep this in a safe place for future references!

Bookstore. To see what books are required for a course and/or to purchase textbooks for a course, visit the MCC Bookstore or NPCC Bookstore.

Tutoring services are available to all MPCC students! Please contact the Student Success Center at your respective campus.

Dropping or Withdrawing from class

The student MUST contact a college advisor themselves in person, by phone, or email to drop or withdraw from a class.

Transferability

Generally our courses are transferable to 2 and 4 year colleges throughout Nebraska. While most also transfer out-of-state, a student should check with the out-of-state college to determine actual transferability.

You may also access the transfer information for Nebraska colleges by going to their websites available by clicking on "Transfer Students" in the menu at the top left. Then choose "Transfer from MPCC" and then choose the appropriate college link.

Students needing a copy of their MPCC transcript are able to print their UNOFFICIAL transcripts via CampusWeb or have their OFFICIAL transcripts sent via Parchment Exchange.
