The newest member of the California Community Colleges, Moreno Valley College is fast becoming the health education center of choice in the Inland Empire with strong programs in health sciences, human, and public services. Each semester more than 7,000 students pursue associate degrees, transfer to four-year sor universities, or earn a certificate.
In 1987, 112 acres of privately owned land in Moreno Valley was donated to the college by the Robert P. Warmington Co. In 1989, 20 more acres were added to the site. The Moreno Valley and Norco Campuses, opened in March 1991, have grown rapidly and were granted initial accreditation in January 2010. It is projected that by 2020, more than 57,000 students will attend classes at either of the three Riverside Community College District campuses - Riverside, Norco or Moreno Valley Community Colleges.
