About MCCKS

Manhattan Christian College

Located in the “Little Apple” – Manhattan, Kansas – Manhattan Christian College (MCC) is a small bible school that focuses on leadership development. One of MCC’s greatest strengths is its low enrollment, which helps to establish a tightly knit community where Christians can grow in fellowship and faith.

Student life at Manhattan Christian College provides several opportunities to develop as a leader and a Christian. In addition to campus activities like small groups and Cru, MCC students can also participate in Kansas State University’s campus ministries.

MCC’s academics include a regular undergraduate program and an adult education program known as Leadership Education for Adult Development (LEAD). LEAD is essentially an accelerated bachelor’s degree program that can earn you a BS in Management in Ethics in just two years.

The regular undergraduate program offers several Christian majors, such as Family Ministry, Missions and Christian Education. You can also pursue a dual-degree program with KSU in Agriculture, Business Administration, Engineering and more.

Federal financial aid is available for all of Manhattan Christian College’s programs. Institutional scholarships are reserved for regular undergraduates, but students in the LEAD program may be eligible for federal grants, loans and military benefits.

For incoming freshmen, admissions requirements at MCC include your official high school transcript and SAT/ACT scores, as well as an application fee. Admissions requirements vary for LEAD students, so be sure to check MCC’s website for specifics.

Overall Rating

I was a student at Manhattan Christian College and they have (mostly) great people there and good-hearted people who are interested in your success. However, one person has completely ruined my experience at MCC. That person is Dave Krahling. He works in the financial office. He absolutely abuses the little power MCC gave him and seeks every opportunity to apply fees and charges extra to students when he can. He is NOT nice about it and is very nasty to the students he interacts with. He charged me AT LEAST one fee (ranging from $100-$1200) EVERY semester I attended MCC without giving me any warning and was very unpleasant about how he carried himself. He lied about a deadline I “didn’t make” and I had to get another staff member to confirm he was wrong, which he (that other staff member) did. There is no reasoning with him and when you try to talk to him his answer is “because I’m the financial officer and that’s what I’ve decided.” He treats you like a little kid. So any charge he puts on your bill are non-negotiable. I realize that since it is his job to make sure students pay their bills, it is in the nature of the job to potentially come across as mean to some people but Dave takes it WAY too far. He carries himself in a way that makes it obvious he is against you, as opposed to working for/with you as a college student. I get along with the majority of people I meet, and I'm writing this review because it is not just some personal vendetta. Almost any student at MCC you ask will tell you that Dave is hostile and self-seeking. And while they probably will not admit it, any staff member who works near him knows how rude and hostile he can be. Other staff members have apologized to me many times on his behalf. A college is a business and they need to make money but Dave takes it way too far. From his malicious-spirited attitude to the way he takes advantage of students, he is not reflecting well on the institution and ultimately on Christ. Unfortunately, if I would have known all this before I would NOT have attended Manhattan Christian College. There ARE good people there but it's sad how one person can ruin such a potentially sweet experience. Do NOT attend MCC unless you are ready to deal with extra fees, charges, and a stubborn, angry man who seems to take out is anger on students.
