College of the Mainland is committed to academic excellence, and students completing the associate degree program are able to transfer successfully to universities in Texas or elsewhere to complete a bachelor’s degree or beyond. Our career-related associate degree and certificate programs provide a pathway directly to high-skill, high-demand jobs in health care, public safety, business and industry. Another part of our mission is to provide quick-response training needed by businesses and industry in our region in order to help provide a strong, vibrant economy. Short-term training is, therefore, available in many fields to provide emerging workforce skills or to upgrade skills required for successful careers in our district, mainland Galveston County.

For students whose academic skills in math, English or reading may be deficient or out of date because it has been years since they were in high school, College of the Mainland offers developmental education courses to help improve your skills to be able to succeed in college courses. A wide range of academic support is available, from that of our expert faculty to computerized labs, to tutors for individual and group assistance.

College of the Mainland is the best place to begin your educational journey to a brighter future. We can help you earn that associate degree as a foundation to transfer to a university or provide the education and training needed for the emerging jobs of the 21st century. Let us help you design the roadmap to your success.
