Middlesex Community College makes it easy to earn an associate’s degree totally online. Through Middlesex Interactive, the college’s comprehensive online learning network, students can obtain a degree completely online or combine online and on-campus course options. MCC also offers many credit and noncredit online courses.

Ten years ago, Middlesex joined the pioneers of distance education by launching the college’s first online course in English composition. Last year, nearly 3,500 MCC students enrolled in at least one of the 111 online courses and five programs of study offered totally online, or in one of the college’s 25 hybrid courses, which combine online and on-campus teaching methods. All Middlesex online faculty members are specially trained to offer courses online.

“Learning online has quickly become one more way for Middlesex students to go to college at times that are most convenient for them,” said Michael Badolato, MCC’s dean of academic resources and instructional technology. “Although online learning is exceptionally flexible and individualized, it also demands a fair amount of discipline. Middlesex’s online courses are of the same quality and carry the same credit as traditional on-campus courses.”
