Get Started at the Mount
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.
At the Mount, where the college president is often on a first-name basis with many of the students, you will be treated like a big fish in a small pond.
Quality of experience is emphasized over quantity of faces in the crowd. While you won’t find massive homecoming ceremonies or elaborate pledge weeks, that doesn’t mean community college life is lacking in excitement. What you will find are intramural sports, student organizations, events, and government, just like any other school. Convenient class schedules are our specialty—including full semester, accelerated 7-week courses, day, evening, and online options.
Are you interested in pursuing higher education? Do you want a degree you can put to use right away in a field that demands technical knowledge? Do you want a more nurturing environment than a typical four-year college, preferably one with small class sizes that allow you to ask questions and get to know your professors?
Mount Wachusett Community College (MWCC) offers students a supportive college experience. You can pursue a variety of different education and career options while knowing we stand ready to assist you with anything you may need, from child care to school supplies. We care deeply about each of our students and want to see you succeed in our varied curricula.
