AVID @ MHCC - Advancement Via Individual Determination

  • Too often, students come to college without the “inside knowledge” needed to truly be successful. In many cases, colleges simply expect students to know what they need – but that isn’t always the case. AVID @ MHCC is a program dedicated to helping new students get started on the right track. We teach the “unwritten rules” of college and provide students with the extra support they need to make college manageable – for EVERYONE!
