Thank you for your interest in Motlow State Community College and for visiting our online Motlow College Catalog!

I am excited to know that you are curious about our college and see Motlow as a potential place to seek a great college education at an affordable, cost-effective price. Whether you are a beginning student, a student seeking to complete an education started earlier in life, a student preparing to transfer to a university, a life-long learner, an employee looking for career advancement, or someone desiring life enrichment courses, Motlow has something special to offer you. Our student body is comprised of full-time, part-time, traditional, and non-traditional age students from diverse socio-economic backgrounds. In other words, we take you from wherever you are and help you achieve your goals to get where you want to be. 

We have four campus locations to better serve your educational needs: the original Moore County campus and three others located in Fayetteville, McMinnville, and Smyrna. We are only a short drive away for most of you, yet we offer an amazing array of opportunities. We are small enough to care about each and every student, but large and varied enough to offer the advantages often found at much larger institutions and universities. 

Motlow College is focused on your success, whatever your personal goals may be. By choosing to attend Motlow, you will join a college community that is dedicated to enriching and empowering our students and the surrounding communities. We are proud of the opportunities we offer here and continually strive to provide exceptional educational growth opportunities in a variety of formats: terminal degree programs, transfer degrees, certificates, and unique courses aimed at upgrading employment skills and continuing education opportunities. We also have multiple entry points into obtaining your education—dual enrollment classes, on-line degree programs, ACE (Adult College Express—accelerated degree programs for working adults), evening and weekend programs, and 2+2 programs whereby students can complete a baccalaureate program while remaining on our campuses. We literally have something for everyone and a creative way to help you find your educational niche.

Motlow faculty and staff take great pride in providing personalized services and ensuring that your college experience will be the best it can possibly be. For example, we have a state-of-the-art Student Success Center and highly trained academic advisors dedicated to assisting you in your unique educational path. Our high quality accredited education programs and our vast array of support services continue to emphasize and promote student success. We are here to serve you, guide you, and celebrate with you as you meet your educational goals. You can learn more about Motlow online at www.mscc.edu, Facebook, and Twitter, or pick up the phone and give us a call at 931-393-1500 or 1-800-654-4877. We look forward to serving you.
