Minnesota Common Course Catalogue

**Important Update**  

 We will change the Schema Version from 2 to 3 at midnight on April 17, 2015. Remember to accommodate this change; vendors need only change the Schema Version number from 2 to 3 in the information before the file header. This means that all XML files for Reporting Year 2014-15 must be submitted with the Version number 3 or the file will be rejected as Reporting Year 2014-15 also opens at midnight on April 17, 2015. Supporting documents can be found under the subheading called Version 3 Information.

What is the MCCC?
The Minnesota Common Course Catalogue (MCCC) is a course classification and data collection system intended to provide uniform information about courses that are taught by Minnesota teachers and completed by Minnesota students.

The MCCC is being implemented to meet state and federal requirements, including: Minnesota Statutes, section 120B.35 - Student Academic Achievement and Growth; Minnesota Session Laws 2009, Chapter 96, Article 2, Section 60 - Implementing Rigorous coursework Measures Related to Student Performance; and HR 2272 America COMPETES Act of 2007 SEC. 6401. Required Elements of a Statewide Longitudinal Data System.
