EDISON, NJ - High school students, who are considering continuing their education at Middlesex County College, as well as anyone who is thinking about taking a course at the college, are invited to attend an open house.

An open house for prospective Middlesex County College students and their families will be held Sunday, November 2 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. in the College Center on the Edison campus.

In many programs, students earn an Associate Degree and then transfer into a four-year college or university as members of the junior class. Working closely with their faculty and advisors ensures this seamless transition and they find that the cost of their undergraduate education is substantially lower because of their work at Middlesex.

The College offers formal credit articulation transfer agreements and dual-degree admissions programs with more than 50 four-year institutions, including Rutgers, Montclair State, Kean, and NYU. It has always been the largest “feeder” school to the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) where its graduates are continually recognized for their outstanding academic achievements.

In other academic programs, students graduate from Middlesex and go right into a career.

“There is no better value in higher education today than the community college,” said MCC President Joann La Perla-Morales. “Our tuition is about one-third of what the public colleges and universities charge and a fraction of the cost of the private schools. In addition, many scholarships are available through the Middlesex County College Foundation.”

At the open house, advisors and administrators will address everything a student needs to know about attending and being successful at Middlesex.

Lisa Gregory, acting director of Admissions, said the open house will allow prospective students to get a taste of what Middlesex has to offer.

“The Open House will provide the opportunity to learn about all the College’s offerings, including the many dual admissions programs with four-year colleges and universities, career opportunities, financial aid and career services,” she said.

There will be representatives from all academic areas. Services for military veterans will be explained and prospective students can tour the campus.
