Welcome Parents to Mid Plains Community College.
MPCC is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission and offers a variety of nationally and internationally recognized quality programs.
MPCC consists of 3 campuses located in the heartland of rural Nebraska.
At our college, we offer quality education in a quiet rural setting that still offers all the amenities of a large city. We have excellent health care, stimulating activities as well as shopping and dining opportunities within a scenic prairie environment. Experience the West and Nebraska's unique attractions: Rodeos, barbeques, The Oregon Trail, NebraskaLand Days, chili feeds, and historic monuments to name a few. Our campuses are located in North Platte (two campuses) and McCook (one campus).
Please consider us for your student's education needs. We are glad you are diligent in investigating wise choices for your student's future. Please feel free to look around and get to know our institution and please contact us with any questions or concerns.
MPCC is an open entry school. This means that any student who meets our Admissions standards will be admitted to MPCC.
Please note that while the college is open-entry, specific programs may have entry requirements that must be met before the student may begin the program. It is important to realize that some programs may have waiting lists.
Here is a list to help your student start their first year off right
- Apply Online (see home page)
- Forward official high school transcript or GED to MPCC Admissions Office.
- Take a placement exam, COMPASS, ACT, SAT, ASSET, etc.
