Guided by the motto “Educate to Elevate,” the New Brunswick Center opened in April of 1980 and provides educational opportunities to meet the needs of the community. The Center was established through the efforts of New Brunswick Tomorrow, the city’s redevelopment organization, aided by an advisory committee comprising of representatives of government, business, industry and community groups. The Center is located in the greater New Brunswick community, easily accessible by public transportation and main highways.
This location offers an extensive list of liberal art courses in disciplines including but not limited to English, Spanish, public speaking, criminal justice, education, psychology, mathematics, computer science, history and biology. Courses are scheduled throughout the day, evenings and Saturdays. The Center also offers non-credit courses for adults interested in skill development/personal enrichment. Common offers include American English Pronunciation, Word Building, English as a Second Language, Computer Confidence and Spanish for Health Care Professionals.
In addition, the MCC New Brunswick Center provides onsite enrollment services including admissions, registration, on site testing, financial aid assistance and payment processing. Key student support services such as academic and personal counseling, library services, individualized tutoring and a variety of academic and career workshops are available on site throughout the academic year. Strong community partnerships exists with various organizations in the area which have resulted in this site being a certified VITA site by the IRS since 2005, the development of the EMPOWER program, a college preparation program for New Brunswick youth in 2009, increased scholarship opportunities and a wide range of volunteer and paid positions for MCC students.
The New Brunswick Center is located at 140 New Street, corner of New Street and Joyce Kilmer Avenue and within walking distance of the New Brunswick train station. Registered students qualify for a reduced fee parking card for the entire semester which gives them access to the New Street parking deck, adjacent to the building. Most staff members are bilingual in English/ Spanish. For more information, call 732.745.8866 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
