Other Special Programs

Our students come from all backgrounds and circumstances. From College Prep and Honors programs to alternative credit options, we do everything we can to help them thrive. 


MMC Honors

Highly motivated and accomplished students find their niche at MMC. The College Honors Program offers an advanced core curriculum and more chances for independent study. Honors Day, the Dean’s List, and national honors societies also recognize the hard work and talent of our top students.
 

Prior Learning Assessment

Some of our students come to college with prior professional or educational experience that merits credit. Submit your portfolio for review to earn alternative credits toward your college degree.

Bedford Hills College Program (BHCP)

In partnership with a consortium of regional colleges and the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility, a maximum-security prison for women, MMC offers college-prep and college level courses for inmates at the facility. BHCP was founded on the belief that successful rehabilitation and re-entry to society depend on education and opportunity for those who have served their time.
 

Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP)

HEOP is a New York state-funded program that provides support for up to five years of undergraduate study to high-achieving, low-income students, particularly those who have had limited access AP and honors courses, leadership organizations, and co-curricular programming.
 

Summer Programs

Our summer programs include HEOP’s 6-week summer prep session for incoming students and Jump Start, a 3-week early orientation and college transition program for pre-freshmen. The College also hosts numerous summer workshops in the creative and performing arts.
