QUALITY EDUCATION AT AN AFFORDABLE PRICE

At Manchester Community College an affordable education is within reach. A full-time student taking 15 credits per semester has an annual

tuition cost of less than $6,500. MCC is the smart choice for students who want a quality education at an affordable price. Our courses are

comparable in academic rigor to those taught at four-year colleges and universities – as a matter of fact, many MCC professors also teach at

other higher education institutions. Start at Manchester Community College and:

• Save money on your first two years of college

• Have a flexible schedule that allows you to work while going to school

• Get the personal attention you want and need - over 80 percent of MCC classes have 19 or fewer students

FROM RUSSIA

TO AMERICA...

Aytaj Ismayilova moved to Manchester from

Vladivostok, Russia in 2013 when she was

19-years-old. For the first few years in New

Hampshire, she was uncertain what career

path to take after studying journalism in

college in Russia. “I was afraid to go to college

in the U.S. because at the time of arrival,

my English was definitely not college level,”

Aytaj said.

After working three years for multiple NH

organizations – from cafes to banks, she felt

the time was right to enroll in her first class at

MCC. Aytaj enrolled in “Nutrition for Exercise

Professionals” and planned to get a certificate.

But when that class was over and she earned

her first American “A”, she decided to go for a

full associate degree. She then changed her

major to Business Communications to get

closer to her life-long dream of pursuing a

journalism career.

The next fall, Aytaj approached one of her

business professors to find out about possible

internship opportunities and was introduced

to Louis Karno Communications in Concord,

where she worked as a paid intern for a

semester. She acquired hands-on experience

working with clients, engaging in fun and

creative activities and even helped promote

the Granite State’s capital as a cultural

destination!

In addition, instead of graduating with one

associate degree, Aytaj enrolled in a second

major – marketing – and will graduate in

December of 2018 with two degrees and plans

to transfer to a four-year college.

Fine Arts Student

“I really like MCC, particularly

the professors who make the

learning process engaging

and interesting. They are

always able to take an extra

step and help students out

with their questions.”

WHEN PLANS

CHANGE...

Jeremy Clague of Hampstead NH, graduated from

MCC with an associate degree in behavioral science,

though college was never part of his original plan.

He had joined the U.S. Marine Corps in 2007 after

graduating from Pinkerton Academy, then served

in Iraq and Afghanistan, where Jeremy was injured

by an explosion in 2010. He returned to the U.S. to

recover. But to add insult to injury, Jeremy was hit

by a car while riding his motorcycle and suffered a

traumatic brain injury. This meant his plans to attend

Marine Security Guard School at Quantico would

never materialize.

While working a desk job in California during his

medical rehabilitation, Jeremy began to suffer from

post-traumatic stress disorder and started therapy

and intensive counseling. This was also about the

time that Buddy, his service dog, came into the

picture. The combination of Buddy and successful

therapy and counseling propelled Jeremy to

refocus his life choices. He became inspired to study

neuropsychology.

While at MCC, Jeremy was an honor student and

served as president of the Veteran’s Club. He was also

a voting student member of the Community College

System of NH’s Board of Trustees, serving alongside

community and industry leaders.

But MCC was just the beginning. Jeremy transferred

to UNH-Manchester to work toward his bachelor’s in

neuropsychology. Then eventually Jeremy will earn

his doctorate so that he can help trauma patients

directly – as he was helped earlier in his life.
