What Students Are Saying

3.02 Average Rating
I absolutly love Morton College. The staff here actually cares about each individual student and does not act like the education of people should be treated as just a business.
Zitlali from Chicago, IL
Morton College is a great community college for prospective students. They have the best available time for those students that work during the day, they also offer online courses, has it's free parking lot, and advisors help our a lot.It's tuition is not high, and has payment plans for those that don't qualify for Financial Aid.
