2019 Student Success Scorecard

Modesto Junior College

Established in 1921, Modesto Junior College (MJC) is one of the oldest community colleges in the state. The college began with an enrollment of 61 students. To complement student growth, the campus has grown as well. The college holds the distinction of having erected the first junior college classroom building in the state. From this modest beginning, MJC has grown until it now provides courses on two sites, the original MJC-East on College Avenue and MJC-West on Blue Gum Avenue in northwest Modesto.
