Guests and Visiting Students

Montgomery County Community College welcomes students from other institutions as well as students interested in taking courses for personal enrichment to attend as a guest or visiting student. Our courses are fully transferable and taught by our outstanding faculty. You can choose between online, hybrid, and traditional classroom classes.

Because we are a community college, our costs are low, making us a great choice if you are looking to take classes to transfer back to a home institution. It is also an economical way to “kick the tires” and explore what we have to offer.
