Montgomery College, founded in 1946, is the Maryland’s oldest community college. The College is chartered by the State of Maryland and is governed by a 10-member Board of Trustees. From a beginning class of 186, the College has grown to a multicampus institution with almost 22,000 credit students and 28,000 Workforce and Development & Continuing Education students. Campuses are located in Takoma Park, Rockville, and Germantown and are complemented by smaller off-campus sites to serve residents throughout Montgomery County.
Montgomery College is an open-access, public education institution dedicated to academic excellence and committed to student success. The College offers more than 100 degree and certificate programs preparing students for the associate’s degree, transfer to a four-year institution, immediate entrance to the job market, upgraded career skills, apprenticeship opportunities, or an enriched life.
The well structured but flexible learning experience is enhanced by the diversity of the student body, faculty, and staff, who bring to the College a rich blend of ethnicity, culture, age, and experience. This diversity provides the students, faculty, and staff the opportunity to appreciate individual differences and to communicate ideas.
