The Middlesex Community College Veterans Resource Center (VRC) is dedicated to helping veterans achieve their educational and career goals. Military service members who are beginning a college career or returning to complete an academic program can choose from a variety of academic programs offered during the day, evening, weekend and online. Fall semester classes begin Wednesday, Sept. 7, and it’s not too late to register!

MCC’s Veterans Resource Center has been established to serve as a place where veterans can receive information about educational programs, assistance with accessing college resources, and answers regarding eligibility for government, state and community sponsored services.

Resource advocates are available to assist military service members and their families in finding answers to help aid in the transition from military service to higher education through support and guidance during the application, admissions and academic process. The VRC also provides a support system where veterans meet other veterans as they become members of the Middlesex college community.

Middlesex is currently ranked sixth on a list of military-friendly community colleges nationwide. Additionally, MCC has been designated a Military Friendly School by Victory Media every year since 2011. The list of Military Friendly Schools honors the top 20 percent of colleges, universities and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace America’s military service members, veterans and spouses as students and ensure their success on campus.
