Why Go To Mountain State College?

With an average student/teacher ratio of 17 to 1, we provide personal attention and support to each student.  This, more than anything else, sets us apart from other colleges.  It’s this support that’s responsible for our high completion and employment rates!

If you’ve tried higher education before and felt like “just a number”…if you “never thought you could” because you didn’t like or do well in high school…or if you’re just plain scared and unsure of what direction to take in your life…call us, e-mail us or come in and visit our admission officers.  They will provide you a detailed explanation of each program of interest, take time to listen to your concerns, and answer any questions you have.

You won't feel pressured; you won't feel confused. What you will feel is good about yourself and the great career paths you can choose.

Since our founding in 1888, we have prepared more than 50,000 people (you read that correctly…50,000!) for great careers.  Be there with the right skills to earn a great living and enjoy a wonderful and exciting lifestyle!
