About MWCC

Welcome to our community. You may be right out of high school, restarting your education, looking to build your job skills, or seeking a leg-up on college with dual enrollment through your high school. Whoever you are, you will be accepted here* at Mount Wachusett Community College.

Founded in 1963 and accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE), we are a public, two-year college. We are dedicated to serving the people in our region with 70+ credit-bearing degree and certificate programs, non-credit, personal enrichment classes for lifelong learners, and workforce development that includes custom, on-site training.

At the Mount, we see each student as a whole person. You may excel at some things and struggle with others. We understand that you may work or balance a family as you take classes. Our faculty and advisors are here to help you grow and achieve success.

We are an affordable community college. Keep in mind that other colleges may cost more, but that doesn’t mean they’re worth more. At the Mount, you will get a quality education that can take you places.

You will have something even more valuable than a degree or certificate when you finish – you will have an education that no one can take away from you.

*Some of our academic programs have selective admissions.  


A University-Caliber Education with Caring Faculty and Lower Cost

Marcia Rosbury-Henne, Dean of Admissions and Strategic Enrollment, explains why you should consider MWCC for your education.
“At the Mount I learned how to find and understand information - to learn. I finally understood why I was learning what I was, and more importantly, that I could use the skills I was learning to make an impact in the community. Ultimately, I realized that I enjoy learning and will continue to do it throughout my life.”
