Mission College is a public community college located within the City of Santa Clara in the heart of Silicon Valley offering more than 70 academic, vocational, basic skills, and enrichment programs. With its highly diverse and active student population, Mission is a great place to earn an Associate's degree, certificate of proficiency or to prepare for transfer to a four year university.

The Welcome Center informs students, increase access to educational opportunities, and connect students to critical resources. We provide these services to attract more students from the local community, especially the underserved student populations. The Welcome Center is in contact with high schools, community organizations, local businesses, and of course students and parents.
