Get the education you've been waiting for at Mendocino College
The awarding of an Associate Degree represents more than an accumulation of units. It symbolizes a thoughtful attempt on the part of Mendocino College to meet the Institutional Student Learning Outcomes (ISLOs) and to introduce students to patterns of learning experiences designed to develop specific capabilities and insights.
Mendocino College embraces the philosophy and criteria for General Education as articulataed in Title 5 section 55061. The College acknowledges that a general education is "designed to introduce students to the variety of means through which people comprehend the modern world," and that a general education "reflects the conviction of colleges that those who receive their degrees must possess in common certain basic principles, concepts and methodologies both unique to and shared by the various disciplines."
The Institutional Student Learning Outcomes for Mendocino College are based on the General Education requirements and support the idea that a general education should equip students with knowledge that they can use "when evaluating and appreciating the physical environment, the culture and the society in which they live."
Mendocino College recognizes that learning happens inside and outside of the classroom. In support of this, Student Services offers many programs and activities that have been established to assist students with achieving their personal and academic goals.
Since we believe that engaged students are happy, well-rounded and successful students, we encourage them to explore their interests, participate in extra-curricular activities, and connect with support programs and resources to ensure their success.
Our students come from diverse backgrounds, ages, and lifestyles. While their diversity makes them unique, they also share common struggles that include financial and/or physical challenges as well as differences in learning styles, which may make attending college difficult.
W e encourage you to contact our office for more information regarding the individual programs and services we offer. The staff in Student Services are available and eager to serve you. Come visit us and let us know how we can be of help to you!
