International and ESL Students

MC is proud to welcome students from 160 different countries around the world, and others for whom English is not a first language.  This diversity and sense of radical inclusion is also reflected in our academic philosophy and in our faculty. 

Welcome International Students

Located on three suburban campuses near Washington, DC, Montgomery College (MC) is a welcoming, diverse site of learning for nearly 60,000 students each year.
