Welcome to Moorpark College.
You have made a wise decision to join our community of learners. We are proud to be ranked the Best Community College in California by The Community College Foundation. So, whether you are a current or prospective student or a visitor to our beautiful campus, a positive experience awaits you here at Moorpark College. Our outstanding faculty, staff, and administrators put “Learner’s First” and their various accolades demonstrate Moorpark College’s steadfast commitment to academic excellence and student development.
We provide the resources and opportunities needed to support students’ academic success. In fact, Moorpark College conferred 1,057 Associate Degrees for Transfer (ADT) in 2016-17, ranking it the first among the 114 California Community Colleges in terms of ADT production. Furthermore, our students excel outside of the classroom by adding value to their communities through service-learning projects. We provide opportunities for students to link their academic knowledge to their career interests through internships and other work-based learning opportunities. The College offers career education programs aligned with changing labor market needs in a safe environment that promotes the wellness of its students, faculty, and staff.
Moorpark College opened in 1967 with 2,500 students and 50 employees. Today, Moorpark College has more than 400 faculty and staff serving over 14,000 students. Our students are primed for success thanks to the foundation laid by our institution’s founders and the ongoing efforts of our campus team today. They are highly successful in transferring to four-year institutions, well prepared to enter new careers, and are engaged in the life and work of their communities. I personally welcome and wish you every success in achieving your educational goals at Moorpark College.

Welcome to Moorpark College!
In 1988, the State of California declared that “the state’s future as a healthy and free, diverse, and creative society depends in major part upon the commitments expressed through and in the community colleges.” The faculty at Moorpark College are excited to join you in creating a future for yourself and for California that we can all be proud of. Whether you plan on transferring to another institution, acquiring specific career skills, or just seeing what our institution has to offer, we are excited to support you along the way. Our library, classrooms, athletic programs, and counseling services are constantly looking to engage the diverse voices of our student and faculty groups in ways that create robust, equitable, and accessible environments for learning, overall personal growth, and ultimately the betterment of society.
