County College of Morris

Located on 222 acres of rolling terrain in Randolph, County College of Morris (CCM) has been meeting the educational and training needs of residents and businesses in Morris County for 50 years. The college first opened its doors to students in 1968 after Henderson Hall, the first building on campus, was completed. The first class consisted of 592 full-time and 703 part-time students. Enrollment grew quickly and now CCM graduates more than 1,000 students each year.

CCM is focused on excellence in teaching and lifelong learning through the delivery of exceptional programs and services that reflect a dedication to inclusiveness and diversity, educational advancement, cultural enrichment and workforce development. A dedicated faculty engaged in research and practice provides CCM students with a learning environment that has produced one of the highest graduation and transfer rates among New Jersey’s community colleges.

Today, the college offers more than 45 associate degree programs, along with a full slate of certificate and workforce development programs. The college holds more than 200 transfer agreements and its graduates annually transfer to the state’s and nation’s best four-year institutions.

CCM also provides multiple opportunities to be engaged in an active student life program. In particular, there are more than 50 student clubs and organizations, an award-winning student newspaper and literary magazine, and eight intercollegiate athletic sports programs for men and women.

Included among its distinctions, CCM was the first community college in New Jersey to be named a National Center of Academic Excellence in Cyber Defense Education by the National Security Agency and Department of Homeland Security. Along with a strong STEM foundation, the college is known for the quality of its liberal arts, performing arts, health science, and culinary and hospitality programs.
