MICL - Modesto Institute for Continued Learning - see the latest trips and classes MICL members are enjoying!

What is MICL?
MICL (pronounced “Michael”), Modesto Institute for Continued Learning, is one of hundreds of similar institutes for mature learners that have become a part of college campuses throughout the world. Under the auspices of Modesto Junior College Community Education, MICL offers lecture, workshop, study and discussion groups during daylight hours on the MJC West Campus where adequate parking is available. Activities such as trips and social events are frequently offered, linking members to the community beyond the classroom. Planning for all classes is done in advance through the Curriculum Committee composed of MICL members.

The MICL semester is divided into three 5-week sessions referred to as A, B, and C Sessions. Classes meet weekly for two hours, at 10:00 a.m. or 1:00 p.m. The class schedules are arranged so members can attend as many classes as they like for one fee each semester. Registration for individual classes is not necessary as MICL membership includes ALL classes. The members plan and often present classes, and all members are encouraged to participate. All classes are not-for-credit and are for the joy of learning.

There are no tests and usually no books to buy. The single membership fee is $40 per semester plus a $10 parking fee for parking adjacent to Building 6000, where the classes are held. The $40 fee covers registration and includes other campus services such as use of the library and bookstore.

An optional contribution of $10 per semester is requested to cover MICL classroom expenses such as curriculum needs, paper supplies, social activities and general costs of producing an interesting, educational environment.

MICL’s exciting trips will involve a charge for expenses incurred.
