Middlesex Community College first opened its doors to welcome students on September 24, 1970.

Since then, MCC has educated tens of thousands of students, helping them on their paths to Associate and Bachelor's degrees, meaningful careers, professional growth, personal enrichment and workforce training.

From the school's humble beginnings at the Bedford Veterans Administration Hospital, the college grew, acquiring the Marist Preparatory Seminary Grounds in 1978, making it the permanent home of the Bedford campus, and then expanded to Lowell in 1989. With the development of MCC's Online Learning Program more than 20 years ago, MCC launched its online learning program making MCC a thriving, vibrant dual-campus institution and a leader in online education.

Starting in September of 2020, Middlesex Community College will kick off a ten-month long celebration of the people, communities and partners that have made MCC what it is today.

This celebration is designed to Honor Our Past and Celebrate Our Future as we look forward to the college's next 50 years as the leading provider of an accessible, affordable, and high-quality education for the Merrimack Valley's diverse community of learners.

More detailed information about MCC's 50th Anniversary Celebration: Honoring Our Past • Celebrating Our Future will be posted to this microsite in January of 2020.
