Coronavirus Impact Update for August 5, 2020 

Dear Students,

It's finally August. That means in just a few weeks, all MTC campuses will be open to students taking on-campus classes. When you arrive, things will look and feel a little bit different. We've been proactively putting precautions in place that include social distancing, disinfecting protocols, rearranging classrooms, and safety reminders. Here's a behind-the-scenes glimpse at what learning looks like now on the MTC campuses.

Please continue to familiarize yourself with the ON-CAMPUS STUDENT PLAN and GUIDELINES. Collectively, we all bear personal responsibilities to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Our goal is to keep you safe while preparing you for your next educational and career steps.

Final Thoughts:

  • You have options: MTC has created four course delivery modes that all provide safe value, close to home. Be sure to search the MTC course offerings to create a schedule that fits your comfort level.
  • Time is ticking: If you are already registered for fall courses, you need to pay tuition and fees by Friday, August 14 at 1 p.m. Otherwise, you could be dropped from your courses. If you have not registered yet, be sure to schedule your advisement appointment ASAP.
  • Need to be advised? Act right away – Zoom appointments are filling fast! Schedule your advising appointment.
  • Already advised but need to register? Use the tools on this webpage to register right now in Student Planning. Registration assistance is also available.
