    School Overview

    Manchester Community College is a two-year public school that is located in Manchester, New Hampshire. The school was founded in 1945 to provide technical training for returning veterans of World War II. After several names and three locations, Manchester Community College has become the second largest of the seven colleges within the Community College System of New Hampshire.

    Manchester Community College offers certificates and associate’s degrees. MCC's courses transfer to four-year colleges and universities in NH and across the U.S., so students often earn their associate’s degree from MCC and move on to a four-year college to earn their bachelor’s degree. As long as students have basic computer skills and Internet connection, they are able to enroll in any of the dozens of online courses available at MCC.
