History

Miami Dade College was established in 1959 and opened in 1960 as Dade County Junior College, located at Miami Central High School. In 1960, new facilities were built which would soon become the college’s North Campus. At the beginning, the college enrolled African American students and Cuban exiles who could not afford other schools, becoming Florida’s first integrated junior college. Some years later, Mitchell Wolfson, the chairman, envisioned a campus in downtown Miami, and in 1973, the Wolfson Campus was built. The college changed its name to Miami-Dade Community College around the same time and initially implemented an open admissions policy, meaning anyone who could afford classes was allowed to enroll. Because of this, the focus of the college became strengthening its academics. With a cut in the education budget by the government, the institution began to rely on the Miami Dade College Foundation – consisting mainly of alumni – for financial support. In addition, new ways of recruiting students were needed, and the college began its “Successful Alumni” campaign in the late 1990s, marketing the success of the college’s alumni to local prospective students. In 2001, Miami Dade implemented a plan to revamp the college, and in 2002 disbanded its Honors Program and created The Honors College for talented high school graduates. In 2007, The Honors College expanded into the InterAmerican Campus with The Honors College Dual Language Honors Program. The Dual Language Honors Program opened its doors to bilingual students who wish to continue their careers with professional fluency in the English and Spanish languages.In 2003, the institution was granted the right to award baccalaureate degrees in education to meet future education needs, and offers three bachelor’s degrees. As there were four-year degrees available to study, the college changed its name again from Miami-Dade Community College to Miami Dade College.Show more

    Thoroughly Secular - Christians Be Warned!

    Overall I did have some great professors and classes at MDC, however, the public school system is no friend to Christians so do keep that in mind if you decide to come here. Know your Bible and be able to make a defense when it it asked of you (1 Peter 3:15).

    Miami Dade College Experience

    What I liked and enjoyed about Miami Dade College is the resources they offer to help financially and the sources for tutoring as well. What I truly disliked about the college is the advising department. It was a mission to speak to an advisor and my department advisor made many errors in my class planner where I took classes I did not need for my degree.

    Advisors

    The school overall is good, I had a great experience with professors. I can say only had 1 math professor that was not good at all. The one B I have is because of him. The only bad thing I have to say about MDC is advisement. The advisor was not good at all. Although I was lucky and found a lady, her name was Sonia Delgado, she was really the only one that knew what she was doing, I went to most campuses taking classes everywhere as I did 4 years in 2. Thanks to her, I didn’t take any unnecessary court and was able to achieve my goal.

    Multicultural community

    It’s located in downtown miami. I took two levels of English and my teacher was one of the best! I learn more that year than in 6 years studying in my country.
    They have so many different career paths that you can follow
    Also, the school its modern and it was a building for parking only.
