- Miles Community College has come a long ways since its inception in 1939. Housed in parts of Custer County High School for 18 years, Miles Community College was Custer County Junior College back then. In 1957, we moved to the old train depot. Around 1967, the American Legion donated the land where Miles Community College sits, and the College began to grow. Although much has changed over the past 65 years, the reasons for coming to Miles Community College have not. Miles Community College offers quality programs. Students who did not graduate from high school can complete their GED on campus or online. MCC offers Associate of Arts and Science degrees with emphases in Elementary Education, Equine Studies, Paraprofessional Educator, Physical Education, Agribusiness, Biofuels, Business, and Pre-Engineering. An Associate of Science in Nursing is offered which train students to become registered nurses. MCC offers Associate of Applied Science degrees in Automotive Technology, Building Technology, Biofuels, Office Technology, Small Business Management, Energy Technology, Equine Studies, Health Information Technology (Coding or Medical Transcription), Information Technology (Graphic and Web Design Option or Networking and PC Maintenance Option), and Radiology Technology (partnership with Montana Tech College of Technology in Butte, MT). Certficate programs are offered in Agriculture, Automotive Technology, Building Technology, Accounting, Customer Relations, Entrepreneurship, Fundamentals of Business, Marketing and Sales, Health Information Technology (Coding or Transcription Option), Health Information Technology-Front Office Medical Assistant, Heavy Equipment Operations, and Paraprofessional Education. Many of these programs offer internships to help students participate in real, hands-on skills training already being used in the workplace. Also, with a professional-technical two-year degree or a one-year certificate, you can immediately enter the workplace, equipped with the appropriate skills employers want and desperately need. For those who want to go on and earn a four-year degree, we offer two-year transfer programs. After obtaining an Associate of Arts or Science, you can—if you wish—transfer to any of the four-year colleges/universities in Montana or any other postsecondary institution. Many of our students have transferred to universities in Montana, Texas, Washington, Idaho, North and South Dakota, Colorado, Virginia, New York, and many others. Miles Community College offers a variety of options for learners—day and night courses, on-campus and off-campus courses, non-credit or continuing education courses, customized workforce development programming, and online and video conferencing courses in over ten outreach sites through our eastern Montana partners. MCC is a member of the National Junior College Athletic Association, Region IX, consisting of Junior Colleges from Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska, and Colorado. MCC also participates in the Mon-Dak Basketball Conference with Junior Colleges from North Dakota and Montana.

We look at why millions of Americans are choosing community college over a traditional four-year school today.
Many students enroll in community college with the intent of transferring to a four-year school. Of those who do, many succeed, and yet traditional colleges and universities continue to overlook them. Read on to learn more about why more community college students don’t transfer schools and to receive some tips for making the transfer yourself.
Community college is the only option for many students who either can’t afford a traditional four-year university or who need a more flexible school environment. Just because community college is different, however, doesn’t mean that its students matter any less. The Aspen Prize exists to encourage community colleges to do more for their students and to continually strive for improvement.
