About MCC

Since 1961, Monroe Community College has worked to meet the diverse educational needs of Rochester residents, from personal enrichment to transitioning to a four-year school. Situated right outside of Rochester, New York, the Brighton campus is the college’s main location.

Monroe Community College is renowned for its innovative approach, and is continually widening the scope of its academics. Since 2000 the college has made a number of improvements to its campus, including the Public Safety Training Facility, the Alice Holloway Young Commons, the Homeland Security Training Institute and the Agriculture and Life Sciences Institute.

Partly because of these additions, MCC offers a wide range of academics. In total, there are more than 120 certificate and associate’s degree programs available, both in academic and vocational subjects. Whether you’re looking for career training or seeking to transfer to a four-year institution, MCC has the program to help you reach your goal.

The school also provides extensive financial aid to those who qualify, including federal loans and institutional scholarships. Students who aren’t eligible for these programs can apply for a number of external aid programs, such as AmeriCorps, NYS Volunteer Recruitment Service scholarships and VA benefits.

Student Ratings

Student at This School - Grad Year 2014

Overall Rating

Many students call this school the 13th grade. I enrolled at the age of 29 and it did feel a little like High School. There are many students there with absolutely no direction; going to college because it's the thing to do. This school is an inexpensive alternative for the first 2 years of a 4 year school. It is good for purposes of transferring somewhere else.
