MCCC is operating remotely, with the physical West Windsor and Trenton campuses closed at least through the end of the Spring semester. Refer to Ongoing Sources and Support for Student Success as well as MCCC Remote / COVID-19 Information & Resources for matters vital to all.
Given the constant evolving landscape of closures and cancellations due to the COVID-19, the leadership of our institution has made the responsible decision to cancel all spring sport seasons, effective immediately. We understand the disappointment and sorrow this brings to our student-athletes, coaches, parents, and the Mercer Vikings family. Our hearts go out to all of you, as we know and appreciate all the hard work that went into preparing for the 2020 season. We will be sure to work within the guidelines of the NJCAA to have all spring sport athletes keep their year of eligibility provided the NJCAA academic standards are met. We hope everyone will be safe and remain healthy during this time.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact John Simone, Athletic Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mercer County Community College has enjoyed four decades of excellence in two-year college athletics. Mercer offers intercollegiate competition in men's and women's basketball, cross country, soccer, and tennis, men's baseball, and women's softball. Some sports offer scholarship opportunities for student-athletes.
The Vikings are members of the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA), Region XIX and the Garden State Athletic Conference (GSAC).
Mercer has won national championships in men's soccer (eight), women's tennis (four) and men's basketball (two). Entering the 2015-2016 academic year, 234 student-athletes have earned NJCAA All-American honors (including 52 two-time winners) and hundreds more have gained Region XIX and GSAC honors. Since 2005, all nine of Mercer's teams have advanced in NJCAA national or district tournaments, and eight of the nine sports have captured Region 19 championships.
Many Mercer student-athletes successfully transfer to four-year schools throughout the United States.
In addition to their success on the playing field, Mercer student-athletes know that to further their collegiate career they must excel in the classroom. Each athlete must agree to academic monitoring and requirements. Progress reports are communicated between the athletic department and faculty advisors. Tutoring is available where necessary, and all support systems are offered to student-athletes to help them achieve academic success.
MCCC athletic facilities are available for community use. details
