Nelson Mandela once said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” It’s absolutely true, and since 1962, Merced College has taken steps to prove that. Our California community college offers 77 associate degree programs, 180 full time professors, 15,379 students, $28 million in financial aid awards, and approximately 83,000 print books found within our library!

But we’re more than statistics. We’re a community committed to providing transformative and empowering educational experiences. Merced College proudly offers technical career education through a variety of degree and certificate programs, ensuring that when our students enter or re-enter the workforce, they’re thoroughly prepared. We believe the search for knowledge and wisdom is one of the most noble human endeavors there is. By exposing students to new ideas, concepts, and points of view, we help to expand their intellectual horizons and nurture their curiosity about the wider world.

Our motto is, “Students are our focus and we are known by their success.” If we can educate and inspire someone to take increase their knowledge and create a positive change in the world, then that’s a level of success of which we can be proud.
