QCC has battled overcrowded conditions for years. In 2005, the MA Department of Higher Education pointed out that QCC’s main campus was at capacity. Today the number of students enrolled has grown exponentially from 5,970 students in 2005 to 9,130 students, an increase of nearly 53% - far more than can be reasonably accommodated. In recent years, QCC has added satellite locations in Marlborough, Southbridge and several Worcester locations to off-set some of the congestion.
Quinsigamond Community College is the most affordable higher education in Worcester County. As a regional leader in education and workforce development, QCC serves the diverse educational needs of Central Massachusetts by providing affordable, accessible, and high quality programming leading to transfer, career, and lifelong learning.
