A Message from the
Welcome to Monroe County Community College.
It’s still all about jobs! According to the August 20 issue of Time magazine, more than 60 percent of jobs in the U.S. will require postsecondary training in the next five years. Furthermore, experts suggest that the U.S. economy will create more than 14 million new jobs over the next 10 years.
With a tuition rate that is among the lowest in the region, Monroe County Community College is an excellent place to acquire the skills necessary to succeed.
- QUALITY EDUCATION
MCCC is a nationally accredited postsecondary institution. The faculty and staff work hard so that MCCC can provide a variety of higher education opportunities to enrich the lives of the residents of Monroe County.
MCCC has joined the ranks of financially approved education institutions to process the GI Bill benefits, including Post 911 and VRAP for veterans. These benefits are America’s way of saying, “Thanks for serving.”
- HOPE FOR THE FUTURE
A $17-million construction project is progressing on campus as of a result of the leadership of MCCC faculty in the development of new curricula for new careers in fields such as nuclear engineering technology, alternative energy and welding. The new Career Technology Center will open this Fall, those programs are currently being offered and students can enroll now.
Why are we optimistic? According to a recent estimate by Boston Consulting, as many as 3 million manufacturing jobs will come back to the United States within five years; they will be high-skilled, high-pay jobs.
I invite you to explore the opportunities we provide at Monroe County Community College. Check us out here on our Web site, or visit our Main Campus in Monroe or the Whitman Center in Temperance.
