Monroe Community College expands your options, in college and beyond. Here you can build a strong foundation for your goals by earning a degree or certificate that matches your plans and dreams

Earn an associate degree with credits that transfer

Our transfer programs are two-year programs where you earn an Associate in Arts (A.A.) or an Associate in Science (A.S.) degree and complete the first two years of a bachelor’s degree in the process. Two-thirds of MCC students are enrolled in transfer programs. They go on to earn their bachelor’s degrees at major national universities, small private colleges, all SUNY schools, and Ivy League colleges.

Lock in your transfer plans with our 2+2 Dual Admission program

With our unique 2+2 dual admission program, you’ll be set up from the start to transfer to your choice of more than 25 participating four-year colleges. One application—and one application fee—locks in your admission to MCC and your chosen school. Once you complete your associate's degree at MCC, you’ll transfer to your four-year school with full junior-year status—and save thousands of dollars in the process.

Pursue a degree that helps put you in the workplace immediately

Through our two-year career programs, you can earn an Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree. From computers to criminal justice, hospitality to human services, you’ll have a degree that translates into opportunities. And you can still transfer credits earned should you decide to pursue a bachelor’s degree.

Build skills with a certificate in your chosen field

Whether you’re looking to enter a particular field, or advance in your current one, our certificate programs offer a high degree of specialization in a short program of instruction. Programs vary in length from 15 to 32 college credits; many can be completed in as little as a year. Courses may be applied toward an associate degree in a related program should you later decide to take that path.
