How We Help

Everyone at MCC wants you to succeed, and you'll feel their support the moment you step on campus. You'll have many resources to help you do your best:Located in Waco, Texas, MCC was established in 1965 by the citizens of McLennan County. MCC was the first junior college in Texas to incorporate the word "community" in its name. For more than 40 years, MCC has been serving Waco and the surrounding areas to help community members achieve their educational goals.


The McLennan tartan, the wool fabric with the distinctive plaid pattern of the McLennan clan, is the official college banner.

The McLennan crest, depicted by a human heart pierced by passion nails, is the official college seal. The motto of the crest is "HOC MAJORUM VIRTUS," which is interpreted as "This is the valor of my ancestors." The colors of the McLennan tartan are the official college colors. The college flag displays a Highlander in black against an orange and white background.


McLennan Community College's mascot is the Highlander, a Scottish warrior in battle dress with a sword and shield. You can spot our mascot, Mac, at a variety of athletic, campus and community events.

Athletic Excellence

Over the last three decades, the Highlanders and Highlassies have established a tradition of excellence. MCC teams have won nine NJCAA National Championships, and the MCC Dance Company is one of the most recognized junior college squads in the nation. Athletes perform well in the classroom as well, regularly earning NJCAA Academic Team of the Year honors.
