Spring is a time for new beginnings and there are many new things happening here at MCC! We wanted to provide you some important updates from Middlesex Community College, so that you can best help your students spring forward in the application and admission decision making process.

  • We have opened our brand new Academic Arts Center, with new specialized certificate programs including the Arts Administration Certificate and Technical Theatre Certificate. For more information about the Academic Arts Center and programming offered there, click here.

  • For new students beginning in the Fall, we will be offering online orientation. This interactive orientation experience will allow students to get all the need-to-know information before starting classes with us and enable students to create a personalized online-based resource.

MCC offers high school students many advantages such as affordable tuition, open admission to most programs, flexible course offerings, two unique campuses and much more. Both campuses offer academic support to all students including free one-on-one tutoring, coaching, advising, and supplemental instruction. MCC also provides a great opportunity for a high school student to get a head start on college-level courses through our Dual Enrollment program.

Our Admissions staff is ready and willing to assist you with questions or to set up informational meetings with your students. Please contact the Admissions office directly to learn more.

We thank you for your continued support of your students and of Middlesex Community College.
