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.

There’s a Place for Everyone at Merced College
Merced College is home to people of all ages, backgrounds, ambitions, and goals. Our youngest students are those enrolled in our summer College for Kids programs. And, in a variety of classes you’ll find retired adult learners sitting alongside students just out of high school. We like to say that we serve students from 8 to 80 years old. In truth, there’s a place for everyone at Merced College.
