Middlesex County College operates as a two-year community college in Edison, N.J. The school was founded in 1964 and today additional locations are in New Brunswick and Perth Amboy. The majority of students that attend the school are classified as full time, and enrollment is more than 12,000 students. Most students that attend MCC enroll in degree programs that are transferrable to other schools in the state.
There are more than 70 degree programs and 29 certificate programs offered at MCC. Students who are good at managing their time and who are self-motivated will find the online courses beneficial at Middlesex County College. In addition to online classes, the college also offers hybrid classes. In the online classroom, students will participate in weekly online discussions, complete assignments, and take exams when it is convenient to their schedule. Each professor teachers their class differently, so students may have additional requirements depending on the course. In a hybrid course, students will still spend 50% of their time online, but they will spend the other 50% on campus in the classroom.
Middlesex County College has held accreditation with the Middle States Commission on Higher Education since 1970.
Middlesex County College has an open admissions policy. Students that will be entering college for the first time can begin the admissions process by completing the application and submitting it along with the application fee. In addition, students will need to have their high school transcripts sent to the university. If a student has taken any other college work, then they need to submit their transcripts from the institution as well. Once admitted, students will take a college placement test. This will help place students in the right classes or even let them test out of certain classes.
