A Message from the President


Joann La Perla-Morales, President of Middlesex County College
I invite you to become familiar with the people of Middlesex County College: students, alumni, faculty, staff and volunteers. Education is a lifelong process and we welcome the opportunity to help you meet your academic, career and life goals.
We offer high value by serving students with small classes, flexible scheduling, including online courses, support programs, innovative teaching, co-curricular and leadership experiences, honors courses and societies, all on a beautiful 200 acre campus with state-of-the-art classrooms and laboratories.
For more than 50 years, the mission of Middlesex County College has been to offer access to a quality, affordable education for a diverse population. That means we strive to provide the best value for:

  • students who plan to continue their education in a four-year program
  • those who are career-minded and seeking employment upon graduation
  • adults and veterans seeking a wider range of skills and knowledge for a career change or advancement.

The record shows that Middlesex continues to fulfill this mission. Middlesex County College is New Jersey’s single largest provider of transfer students to Rutgers University, New Jersey Institute of Technology and Kean University; Middlesex is a training center for positions in some of the world’s largest corporations, many that maintain headquarters here in the Garden State.

Middlesex County College has proven its worth to nearly 54,000 alumni and more than 300,000 others who have participated in our vast number of educational opportunities since the College was founded in 1964. That accounts for many success stories you can learn about on our website. Consider all that we have to offer and soon you may join your proud and productive neighbors with your own story of “My success started at Middlesex County College!”
