Resilient MC

Germantown MC campus sign

Throughout the ongoing pandemic, Montgomery College has prioritized the health and safety of its students and employees above all else. As we move into the next phase of teaching, learning, and working, this will continue to guide all of our decisions about the structure of our education programs and delivery of key services.

Daily life has changed for all of us. MC’s commitment to high quality education that is affordable and serves the critical needs of our community has not. In fact, we are more resolved in our commitments to our students, employees, and community. MC has continued to provide excellent education throughout the pandemic. We have protected our students’ transfer opportunities. We take special pride in the innovative, creative responses that have evolved in our classrooms and support services—and in the extraordinary resilience that our faculty and staff have shown. As our mission dictates, we will continue to empower our students and serve our communities. 

Montgomery College is strong. Montgomery College is resilient. MC embodies excellence, courage and radical inclusion. You can be transformed by your experience here.
