Welcome to the Montgomery College family!
A Montgomery College education is about liberating your hopes and dreams and turning them into tangible goals. By fortifying yourself with an education, you make a commitment to empower yourself and, in turn, your whole family. This is not, and will not be, a solo venture. Your successes, and your challenges, are shared by so many around you: your family, your friends, your classmates, your professors, and your Montgomery County community. By making a difference in your own life, you are enriching the lives of many people around you, some of whom you may not even know yet.
At this point, you are one step closer to changing your life. If you ever start to doubt yourself, I encourage you to take a breath, and purposefully turn to a supportive person, such as a professor, a counselor, a friend, or a parent. All stand ready to help you reach your potential, whatever goal you set for yourself.
Whether you are the first member in your family to attend college, or one of a long line of college graduates, you are now in the right place to make your own mark on the world. Whether you are here to earn a certificate in a critical trade, earn an associate’s degree, or transfer to a university to earn a bachelor’s degree, we have a place for you. Perhaps you are still deciding what career to pursue? You are in the right place to carve your own future and fulfill your dreams. No matter who you are, you are forever part of a phenomenal and very special family: Montgomery College.
