You must be the change that you wish to see in the world

- Mahatma Gandhi


The Transitional Studies program prepares students for success in entry-level college courses and beyond. Almost a third of all entering MCC students enroll in one or more Transitional Studies courses.

We offer courses in math, reading, and writing. These courses emphasize basic skills and personal growth. In addition, the ESOL & Transitional Studies Department offers college orientation courses that are designed to help students make a successful transition to college studies.
