All About Jayhawk Softball

Muskegon Community College Softball is dedicated to providing an atmosphere where student athletes can learn and grow in the classroom, on the softball field, and in life. Jayhawk Softball is all about a “team first” mentality and a belief that to be successful, the team is always more important than the individual. We continuously recruit players that we think will fit with these expectations. We believe to be a great team you must first be a great person, student, and teammate. Our goal is to build our team into a family where all of our student athletes come together to contribute to our success on and off the field.  

Using these ideals, we have been able to build a very successful program with a great tradition. At M.C.C., we are modeled after a Division I program. Our expectations in the classroom and on the field are very high. One of our main goals is to move our players on to other programs where they can make an impact and continue to succeed on and off the field. Since 2007, we have sent 33 players on to play at the next level. 

We have also been fortunate to win Conference, State, and Regional championships as well as a National Championship in 2010.  We also made another trip back to the national tournament in 2012, finishing 7th in the nation.  Throughout the years, our players have received several awards including All-Conference, All-District, All-Region, and All-American honors.  Our coaching staff has also been honored.  We received the 2010 Division II National Coaching Staff of the Year, the 2012 N.F.C.A. Division II East Regional Coaching Staff of the Year, and the 2014 MCCAA Western Conference Coach of the Year.

Tuition:

Below is our tuition and contact hour charge rates for in-district, out-of-district, and out-of-state. For our out-of-district and out-of-state students, once they have established residency in-district for 6 months, they will pay the in-district tuition rates.  

We offer athletic scholarship money to our athletes that vary in amount depending on the player. For in-district students, there is also a Board of Trustees Scholarship that may be available depending on G.P.A.  

We also recommend visiting www.fastweb.com to check for scholarships as well as talking with your high school counselor. You can find more information on our scholarships at

Tuition and Fees

One key goal of the Muskegon Community College Board of Trustees is to keep tuition costs as affordable as possible. In that regard, comparisons with the other 27 community colleges in Michigan generally show that MCC's costs are consistently in the lowest quartile. Compared to most universities and private colleges, MCC's tuition rates are substantially lower.

Living:

N.J.C.A.A. rules do not allow anyone on the coaching staff to help players find housing. While we do not offer housing on campus, there are several apartment complexes in the area that our players use. Usually, players coordinate with each other to find their roommates. The cost for this per month is usually around $250.00 or less per person. Our sophomores have experience with finding a place to live and can help incoming freshmen figure out their arrangements.
