Why Choose Middlesex?

  1. Same Degree, Better Value: Start at Middlesex, transfer to the 4-year school of your choice and save thousands off the cost of tuition!

  3. No Hassle Transfer Guarantee: With transfer agreements to over 50 schools, you can keep all of your credits and enjoy a smooth transition. We have the #1 transfer rate to Rutgers University and Kean College.

  5. Honors Program: Our honors program prepares our students for admission into more rigorous 4-year institutions.

  7. 4-year campus feel at a 2-year college: You get a beautiful, spacious campus, great facilities, and hundreds of sports and clubs without the hefty price tag of a 4-year school.

  9. “Springboard to Success” Program: Our student service offices get you where you want to go. Early and often, we discuss each student’s vision for their next steps academically, personally, and professionally - and provide them a “Roadmap To Success” so they can find their way.

  11. Faculty Focus: Students are our priority! Middlesex’s student-to-faculty ratio is 21 to 1, so you won’t be just another number. Enjoy classes taught by dedicated professors – not TA’s.

  13. Building Futures: We don’t just award degrees. We build confidence, capabilities, and successful futures for our students. Our goal is to make every student a lifelong learner and we have a proven track record.
