About Modesto Junior College
Modesto Junior College, one of the oldest community colleges in California, was organized in 1921, and holds the distinction of having erected the first junior college classroom building in the state. MJC was established to meet the needs of the community, and strives today to maintain the same objective - that of dedication and service to the educational needs of our community. The College began with a charter enrollment of 61 students. Through the years registration has increased until today more than 19,000 day and evening students are enrolled each semester. MJC offers 88 associate degrees and 93 certificate programs. In addition, over 8,000 community members participate in the variety of MJC's Community Education offerings.
