Monroe County Community College (MCCC) is a public community college located just west of the city of Monroe, Michigan with another building, the Whitman Center, located in Temperance. The main campus itself is just south of M-50 within Monroe Charter Township. MCCC was founded in 1964 and is the only higher education institution in Monroe County. While the college was established in 1964, it did not open for students until 1967.
MCCC offers a general education program for students seeking transfer to a four-year university or those seeking a career in a vocational education. The college has a highly regarded and selective nursing school. The highest degree that one can achieve solely through MCCC is an associate degree. Some nearby universities, such as Eastern Michigan University and Siena Heights University, offer some of their undergraduate courses at Monroe County Community College for the convenience of those in certain programs. Therefore, one can receive a bachelor's degree without ever leaving MCCC's campus. MCCC also has a Formula SAE chapter, a student operated newspaper (Agora), and programs available in distance learning, courses on video, and online courses. The college has no sports teams, but they do offer intramural courses in many sports and physical health classes.
