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.
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.
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.
MMC offers two degree-granting prison education programs—the Bedford Hills College Program (BHCP) in partnership with a consortium of regional colleges at the Bedford Hills Correctional Facility, a maximum-security prison for women, and the Taconic College Program (TCP) in partnership with nonprofit Hudson Link for Higher Education in Prison at the adjacent medium-security Taconic Correctional Facility. MMC offers college-prep and college level courses for inmates at both facilities. The BHCP and TCP were founded on the belief that successful rehabilitation and re-entry to society depend on education and opportunity for those who have served their time.
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 to AP and honors courses, leadership organizations, and co-curricular programming.
Our summer programs include the Summer Academic Institute, HEOP’s 6-week summer prep session for incoming students, and Jump Start, a 3-week early orientation and college transition program for pre-first-year students. The College also hosts numerous summer workshops in the creative and performing arts.
