Overall Rating

MPC is a community college and servers its purpose. There is no reason to travel out of state to attend the college but if you are local to Monterey this is a great place to start your college career. The school is very flexible for military attending DLI and allow for foreing language credits to transfer from DLI to MPC. Transferring credits from MPC to a university is also very easy.

It has been soooo long since I was in college... I am returning to study Spanish to assist in my current job as a Human Resources Manager. When I went to MPC... I enjoyed the classes - sports and the fact that it was easy to get to and around.
