New students should review their Placement Test scores on MyMTC. New students (never attended college) may be advised for their initial courses at their orientation session.
Transfer students (those with prior college credits) must schedule an advisement appointment through the academic department for their MTC major. Contact information is made available on the MTC website each semester. MIDLANDSTECH.EDU/advisement.
