Welcome to Merritt College!
As Merritt College’s new president, I’m excited to be part of such a vibrant and productive environment filled with opportunities for all. Merritt’s ability to continue offering a wide array of courses, programs, and services is assured thanks to local voters and the passage of last year’s Measure B parcel tax and Proposition 30.
Whether you want to transfer to a four-year institution to continue your education or earn a short-term certificate to prepare you to enter the workforce right away, we have something to meet the needs of all students. Look through this schedule and you’ll find everything from Administration of Justice and Business to Environmental Management and Landscape Horticulture and many more choices in between. Our popular science classes with transfer curriculum include Nursing, Nutrition and Dietetics, and Radiologic Science. The majority of our programs have both associate degree and certificate offerings.
Because we know it can be tough to start out, we have support services to help you along the way, from counselors to help you plan your classes to financial aid staff to help find ways to pay for them. Other help can be found in widely used programs such as First-Year Experience, PUENTE Project, Disability Services, and Veterans Affairs. Along with our academic programs, we provide plenty of extracurricular programs like student government, clubs, and campus activities to enhance your classroom experience and help you find a balance in your college life.
Whatever your age, experience, or background, there is a place for you at Merritt College. Our distinguished and dedicated faculty, staff, and administration work together to provide the support and resources that will assist you in reaching your educational goals. To find more detailed information about Merritt’s programs and services, please check out our catalog online at www.merritt.edu .
If you are a potential student, a new student, or a continuing student, we look forward to seeing you on our beautiful college campus located in the hills of Oakland—the perfect setting to pursue your dream and change your life!
