Including most Spring Semester classes through April, MCCC is operating remotely, with the physical West Windsor and Trenton campuses currently closed except for limited classes and other college-sanctioned activities. Refer to Ongoing Sources and Support for Student Success as well as MCCC Remote / COVID-19 Information & Resources for matters vital to all, including plans for returning to campus.
MCCC Athletics has worked within the guidelines of the NJCAA and we are pleased to announce that our Spring athletes have been granted another season of participation based on NJCAA academic standards for the upcoming Spring 2021 season.
We hope that everyone remains safe and healthy during this time.
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
