College Connections Center

#Getconnected with #CCC! Free college advising!

We are closed for Summer 2018! Thank you to Metropolitan Community College at Penn Valle & Longview for hosting us this summer! Stay tuned for our Summer 2019 plans! If you are still in need of free help, find us on social media.

The College Connections Center (CCC) is operated by the Missouri College Advising Corps (MCAC) in the Kansas City Metro Area and was specifically designed to assist college-bound students. The CCC has been a great help to those who may otherwise have fallen victim to "summer melt", the phenomenon that up to 40 percent of students who are college-bound upon high school graduation do not actually enroll in college in the fall. Students end up not enrolling on their selected campus for many reasons, most often due to financial burdens. Based on the experiences of model summer transition programs in Boston, Massachusetts; Fulton County, Georgia; and Providence, Rhode Island, students receiving advisement during the summer between high school and college are projected to enroll in college at a rate of 5–14 percent greater than those not receiving advisement during summer.

Since the inception of the CCC in 2014, we have helped hundreds of students achieve thier collegiate goals. We have expanded our purpose to provide ongoing support to studetns – not just as they transition to college – but also through freshmand and sophomore year.
