Is Continuing Education right for you? If your immediate goal is to learn, improve or become certified in a specific area of your career as quickly as possible, chances are it is. Continuing Education offers courses and nationally recognized career certifications that can be completed in a shorter time frame than in an academic credit program. There are no placement tests to take, no transcripts to submit and you don’t need to apply to the college to take classes. While continuing education courses typically don’t earn college credit or transfer to other institutions, these courses are attractive to many students looking for a quick, intense approach into new careers. http://www.midlandstech.edu/cce/programs.htm
If your goals include earning a college degree, then one of MTC’s credit programs may be best for you. Credit students apply to the college, meet with academic advisors and progress through a Career Program or Arts and Sciences curriculum. Full-time credit students are normally enrolled between two and ten semesters while seeking their degree, diploma or certificate; and typically have more financial aid opportunities.
