Montgomery County Community College was founded in 1964 and began serving the community in 1966 from its initial location in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania. Since that time, the College has grown with the needs of the community, building its Central Campus in Blue Bell in 1972 and then opening the doors of the West Campus in Pottstown, in the fall of 1996.
Along with these two campuses, the College offers distance learning opportunities as well as courses at various off-site locations, including the Willow Grove Naval Air Station and Lansdale. Supporting the College's mission to offer high quality, affordable, and accessible educational opportunities for community residents, the College is funded in equal parts by the County, the State, and student tuition and is locally sponsored by Montgomery County.
The College is governed by a fifteen person Board of Trustees appointed by the Montgomery County Commissioners and is fully accredited by the Commission of Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools.
