We Change People's Lives Everyday

A community college is an institution of higher learning that serves the entire community. Merced College educates nurses, farmers, welders, electricians, and teachers. We train people looking for immediate employment in exciting and rewarding high-tech fields like sonography and biotechnology. We give older adults opportunities to enjoy recreational activities like painting classes, dance lessons, and bus trips. Many of our students are here for a second chance at education after raising families.

In fact, Merced College is a treasure box full of hopes and dreams for thousands of students each year. We are the cultural center of our community with superb music and performing arts programs, guest speakers, and lectures. Our athletic programs provide quality competition in an environment of academic learning. We continue to prepare hundreds of students each year to transfer to four-year institutions.

We changes people’s lives everyday—you, other community members and businesses make this possible by making financial contributions to the College. Generous donations by community members like you enhance our ability to meet our educational mission.
