Welcome to Midland College!

All of us who are employed here are united in extending our best efforts on your behalf. We like to think of our college as student centered. That is, we try diligently to meet your needs whether they relate to academics or the many other facets of student life. If you have questions, all you need to do is ask. We will respond. We want your experience here to be fulfilling, and we want you to meet the goals you have set for yourself.

You will immediately be impressed with the quality and dedication of the Midland College faculty. They are well prepared for their tasks. They believe in our philosophy: given the opportunity and motivation, people of all ages and stations in life can achieve their aspirations. Each and every member of the faculty is available to facilitate the learning process through personal contact with our most important product, you the student.

The Midland College campus is alive with a stimulating dynamic environment. Whether you seek certification in a specific area or attainment of the associate and/or baccalaureate degree, you will find a superior atmosphere in which to work and study. You will find dozens of ways to supplement your experience with athletics, journalism, student government, music, interest groups, and a myriad of activities. We desire that you participate in campus life to the fullest extent possible. We recognize that most of you work at least part-time and that family responsibilities often take priority. Whatever your participation, the college family will be enriched by your presence.

In addition to the associate degree program, the College now includes the baccalaureate degree, serving professionals in 18 career areas, thereby expanding opportunity for our students. In addition, the College offerings now include The University Center that provides baccalaureate programs from area colleges including, Sul Ross State University, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, and The University of Texas of the Permian Basin.

This is your college. It exists solely for you, our students. Together we can work miracles and remove those obstacles which hold us back. Opportunity is all about us. Sharing the Midland College experience will heighten our abilities to live productively and happily. We’re glad you’re here!
