Tiger Pathways (Formerly MizzouMACC)

Tiger Pathways (Formerly MizzouMACC)

The MizzouMACC program has been discontinued for students entering in Fall 2022 or later. Students currently enrolled in MizzouMACC will continue in the program until they graduate or transfer.

Mizzou has replaced MizzouMACC with Tiger Pathways, a new access program that allows freshman applicants denied admission to Mizzou to be degree-seeking at MACC and non-degree seeking at Mizzou.

Students who want to be degree-seeking at MACC and take classes at Mizzou or another institution can still do so through our MACC+ program. MACC+ is a consortium agreement program where students are degree-seeking at MACC and also enroll in classes at a host institution.
