Merced College, established in 1962, is a community college located in Merced, California. Merced College has two campuses for students. The main campus is located in the city of Merced itself and has a satellite campus in Los Banos, California.[4] Merced College also has classes available at other locations outside of their two main campuses for students at the high schools in Delhi, Dos Palos, and Mariposa, as well as classes for employees of the Valley State Prison for Women and the Central California Women's Facility at the Valley State Prison.[5] The college dropped the wrestling program due to low finances.
