Today’s college students are the business owners, leaders, and innovators of tomorrow. Making education accessible to the next generation is an investment that will genuinely reverberate throughout the ages. In our community, Mercer County Community College provides students from throughout the region with the invaluable opportunity to receive a college education.

When you contribute towards a community college education, you are essential in transforming a life. MCCC and other community colleges throughout the nation are integral in offering students from all walks of life an avenue to higher education. Community colleges offer students countless benefits, including flexible course offerings, affordability, academic and social enrichment, and more. Unfortunately, college may seem too far out of reach for students who struggle financially. However, through meaningful financial aid opportunities and donor support, a dream of education can quickly become a reality.

As one of the region’s finest community colleges, Mercer County Community College is a priceless resource to students in the area. With an abundance of degree programs, continuing studies resources, online course offerings, and more, MCCC’s plenty of program offerings can help meet the needs of every kind of student. Between their two campuses, one in West Windsor and one in Trenton, MCCC serves hundreds of students in our community every day.
