Students can pursue more than 20 areas of study, including air conditioning technology, business administration systems, mining or welding technology, computer and information technology, nursing, and paramedic technology. Many programs offer diplomas or certificates. For instance, the paralegal technology program offers a 39-hour certificate program that can be completed in three semesters by full-time students. Other programs, like medical information technology, offer a range of certificate, diploma, and degree options. Students interested in this field can earn an Associate of Applied Science in two years, a certificate in one year, or a diploma in three semesters.

MCC has open admissions, though some specializations, such as the physical therapist program, have additional qualifications for enrollment. While there are no minimum test scores for admission, applicants must submit ACT, Asset, or COMPASS scores along with high school transcripts or GED scores. Kentucky requires placement test scores for any student wishing to attend a state college. Test scores do not bar students from admission, but students who are not exempt must take the COMPASS test in order to determine placement in MCC classes. Applicants who take the ACT and score at least 18 in English, 20 in reading, and 19 in math may be exempt from the COMPASS.

In 2011, 35% of MCC students had full-time status. That same year, 52% of the students were male and 98% came from within Kentucky. In 2011, the largest racial group at MCC was White, accounting for 89% of the student body.
