Midland College, located in Midland, texas, was founded in 1969 when residents of Midland voted to join the Permian Junior College System, which at the time included Odessa College. Within three years the school expanded by building a new campus and the formation of its own community college district through the issuance in 5.1 million dollars in bonds. Midland College has since grown in physical size and enrollment, having become an active member in the community through cultural advancement and educational enrichment. The school is continuingly updating its programs and facilities in anticipation of student needs while meeting current demands.
Midland College offers a large number of programs that provide career and technical training alongside programs that facilitate transfer to four year institutions to continue one's education. The variety of programs allows students to choose the one that best suits their needs and meet their plans for the future. Career training programs provide the skill development and training in a given field, allowing the student to enter the workforce as a qualified professional upon completion. These programs are usually in high demand fields, and provide a mixture of practical training and classroom education, ensuring that the student has the relevant experience to begin employment. Programs take between one and two years and result in a degree or certificate.
Academic transfer is accomplished by completing courses usually taken during the first two years of a four year education, followed by applying to a college or university to transfer those credits and continue one's education at the new institution to complete a bachelor's degree. Transfer applicants must meet the requirements of their desired school or schools, and as such it is recommended that students meet with an advisor to construct a curriculum that best fulfills those requirements.
