The underlying philosophy of the Martin Community College Division of Continuing Education is that learning is a lifelong process. Education does not stop with the completion of formal schooling but continues throughout life. The MCC Division of Continuing Education offers courses to address the life-long learning needs of our adult population in the community.
Continuing education programs at MCC offer opportunities for people currently employed to upgrade their skills. There are also a number of training programs in such areas as fire fighting, law enforcement (e.g., BLET), basic skills, and emergency medical services (EMS).
Any adult 18 years of age or older, or an individual between the ages of 16 and 18 who has officially withdrawn from high school, is eligible to enroll in continuing-education courses. High school students, 16 years of age or older, are permitted to enroll under the MCC dual-enrollment policy with approval from the appropriate public-school officials. Contact your local school counselor for additional information.
If you have met these requirements, then you are ready to begin the admissions process.
The MCC Continuing Education Division has implemented a new pre-registration process.
You may register for Continuing Education classes on a first-come, first-served basis. Complete the registration form and pay at least 3 days prior to the beginning date of your class. If you wait, your class may either be full or canceled because of a low number of registrations. Late registration will be held at the first class meeting, if space is available. Third Party Authorizations must be received at least 3 days prior to the start of class. Should the College be closed 3 days prior to the start of class, registration will be taken the first day the College is reopened. Payment can be made only with cash or check. Make all checks payable to MCC.
Basic Skills courses follow an open-enrollment procedure that allows students to enroll at any time.
For more information about the new pre-registration process, check out the announcement flyer.
To register or pre-register for a class, see the Continuing-Education Registration Form.
In an effort to keep our students informed of the requirements of our Healthcare Programs, all students are required to attend an orientation session prior to enrolling in our Healthcare Programs.

Many MCC continuing-education courses and services are provided on the main MCC campus in Williamston, North Carolina and/or the Bertie Campus in Windsor, North Carolina. Additional courses are taught at off-campus sites in the College's service area. Classes may be organized when a sufficient number of students indicate a need or interest in having a class brought to a particular location.
Times of courses vary as they are offered. For more information about the times or locations of classes, see the Continuing-Education Class Schedule.
MCC offers a range of programs to continue your education. The following are the main areas of continuing education at MCC:
Some continuing-education courses are free, while others require a nominal charge for admittance. The fee schedule is as follows:
All fees are subject to change by act of the North Carolina General Assembly.
Continuing education, occupational-extension courses may carry Continuing-Education Units (CEUs) credit. The CEU is a uniform standard of measurement for participation in non-credit, occupational courses. CEUs are awarded on the basis of one CEU per ten-contact (class) hours. The MCC Division of Continuing Education maintains a permanent record on each student who takes a continuing-education course. The records are available to students upon request. Students needing a transcript should contact the MCC Division of Continuing Education.
College credit is not awarded for completion of continuing-education courses; however, certificates of completion are awarded for completion of some courses. Diplomas, certifications, licenses, or other forms of recognition are awarded by certain agencies outside the College for successful completion of specially designated courses.
