In the realm of education, the understanding that not all students are created equal is fundamental. Educational institutions bear the responsibility of fostering a socially inclusive environment that caters to the diverse needs of their community. Mabalacat City College (MCC), a dynamic community college renowned for its diverse student body, serves as a beacon of inspiration. Through its community-driven Admissions initiatives, MCC goes beyond merely processing student applicants; it leads the way in implementing a range of programs firmly anchored in approved policies.

These initiatives are underpinned by a core belief in:

  1. Acknowledging Unique Circumstances: MCC wholeheartedly recognizes that each student, hailing from a rich tapestry of backgrounds, arrives at the academic doorstep with a distinct set of circumstances. These circumstances may necessitate additional support or flexibility for students to thrive academically. Whether it involves addressing physical disabilities, navigating personal challenges, or accommodating factors that influence their educational journey, MCC's Admissions Office remains steadfast in its commitment to ensuring that every student's distinctive needs are met; and
  2. Addressing Educational Inequalities: At MCC, the commitment to fostering equity extends beyond recognizing unique circumstances. It also extends to acknowledging the existence of educational inequalities. As a community-driven institution, MCC understands the imperative of promoting equitable access to education for all. By proactively addressing these disparities, MCC endeavors to level the playing field and ensure that every student has an equal opportunity to succeed academically, regardless of their background or challenges they may face.



MCC UNA Program

This academic year marked a significant milestone with the introduction of The MCC UNA program (First Generation Special Admissions Program), which was created to accommodate applicants whose parent(s) did not complete a four-year college or university degree, irrespective of the educational backgrounds of other family members. As a pivotal element of this initiative, these students were automatically granted enrollment within the prestigious CRIMSON TRIBE community. Centered on first-generation students, this program allocates special admission slots to 72 recipients who are the first in their families to embark on a college degree.

The primary aim is to foster equal access to education for this demographic, providing tailored support to enhance their prospects of successfully completing a college degree. The Admissions Office collaborates with partner agency, particularly the City Social Welfare Development Office (CSWDO) of Mabalacat, to assess first-generation student qualifications and plays a pivotal role in facilitating College Automatic Admissions.


This program is dedicated to members of the indigenous peoples (IPs) community, with 14 recipients. Its objective is to provide educational opportunities and support to indigenous students. The program offers special admission slots, addresses unique challenges faced by indigenous students, and provides specialized support. The program's impact includes fostering educational equity, preserving cultural heritage, and empowering indigenous students in their pursuit of higher education. The Admissions Office collaborates with both internal and external partner agencies for the admissions process of MCC I-PEACE Applicants.
