Your pursuit of post-secondary education and training begins here with a dedicated community of learners and leaders committed to supporting student success. Beginning with Motlow demonstrates that you have an idea of where you want your educational journey to take you. We want you to know that you can go anywhere from here!

The College offers multiple pathways geared toward the opportunities that lay in wait for graduates today and tomorrow. We have on-ground options available to you in Moore, Lincoln, Rutherford, Warren, and White counties to meet your educational and training needs. Our virtual platforms are equally as robust and allow flexibility while providing quality and rigor. These programs include associate degrees in more than 40 disciplines that enhance, thrust, and prepare students for transfer or provide options to move directly into the workforce.

Our partnerships with state and private universities provide clear paths for students to complete their baccalaureate degrees at Motlow State Community College. Our institution also provides workforce-readiness training in addition to certificate programs connected to business and industry leaders, accelerated associate degree options, and dual/joint-enrollment classes that provide high school, home-school, and non-traditional students an opportunity to jumpstart or restart their college careers.

Motlow’s Honors Program provides an education of exceptional quality and offers a keen sense of community and collegiality for students who have an interest in learning, leading, and laughing. Students in the Honors Program are tomorrow’s leaders and exhibit a drive for academic excellence, community engagement, and a hunger to learn more.

Outside of the classroom, Motlow State students form friendships, share interests, and develop leadership skills through memberships in a wide variety of clubs and organizations, including championship athletic programs. Student and college activities are additionally highlighted via social media.

“Student-centered” describes Motlow College, and we continue to focus on student success and workforce development. Our award-winning faculty and dedicated staff work together to create an environment of belonging, inclusion, equity, and diversity where you can thrive academically, grow socially, and engage civically.

We pledge our support to you from the day you walk into our College, through graduation, and all the moments after that you lean into the College as an alum. A Motlow student today grows into a Motlow member for life. Thank you for choosing us!
