EDISON — Middlesex County College is still accepting students for its Fall 2011 semester. Ninety-nine degree and certificate programs are offered including two new ones: Earth Science and Allied Health Pre-Professional.
“Whether you are a recent high school graduate or someone who is looking to change or enhance his or her career, Middlesex County College is a great fit,” said Lisa Gregory, associate director of admissions at the college. “We are large enough to have a multitude of academic programs, yet small enough so you get to know your professors personally. We are affordable – tuition is only $101 per credit for Middlesex County residents – and we have financial aid and scholarships available.”
To assist students with the admission process, the college is offering Enrollment Express on Friday, Aug. 19 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“For Enrollment Express, we are waiving the application fee, so students can apply for free, register for courses, pay tuition and fees and then start classes on Sept. 6,” Gregory said. “Staff and students are there to answer questions, you can take a campus tour, and visit the bookstore for all your supplies.”
The two new programs will begin this fall. Allied Health Pre-Professional is designed for students interested in a career in nursing, radiography, dental hygiene, medical laboratory technology and respiratory care, as well as other allied health careers. Graduates will be able to apply to one of the selective health technology programs at MCC or transfer to a four-year college or university.
Students in the Earth Science program will study the earth as a giant multi-dimensional system. Earth and its natural resources will be the focus of this program. It is designed so that graduates may transfer to four-year colleges or universities and receive a bachelor’s degree.
