Clubs and Organizations

There are many clubs and organizations active on campus. Through participation in these clubs and organizations, students may explore and extend their interests and further develop their skills and abilities by working with fellow students. Membership is open to all students who meet the qualifications of the respective club. This information is available in the Student Life office or online at: https://mymtc1.MIDLANDSTECH.EDU/StudentLife/Clubs/Pages/default.aspx. Information on procedures for chartering a new student organization is also available.

Honor and Leadership Organizations

Student honor and leadership organizations include the Midlands Technical College Ambassador Assembly,  the Alpha Eta Kappa Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society (PTK), the National Technical Honor Society (NTHS), and the National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS). The Ambassador Assembly is an honor/volunteer organization of outstanding students selected to represent Midlands Technical College at college and community events. Phi Theta Kappa is an international honor society for community college students. The National Technical Honor Society recognizes outstanding students enrolled in Career Program majors. The National Society of Leadership and Success is a national leadership development organization chartered on two and four year college campuses. A defined leadership development program must be completed for induction in the Midlands Technical College NSLS chapter.

Cultural and Co-curricular Programming

A major goal of the Student Life Office is to augment students’ academic experience through co-curricular programming. Lectures, seminars and workshops on a variety of subjects are offered as well as performances by local artists, films and special interest programs.

Identification Cards

In support of campus safety and security, all enrolled students are required to maintain a current MTC ID card and to show it upon request on MTC campuses. ID cards are required to access some college services. Student ID cards may also be used for off-campus benefits.

All MTC ID Cards are processed virtually. To receive an ID card, students must log in to MyMTC and visit the Student Life page:  Students must upload proof of registration for the current or upcoming semester and proof of tuition payment to the electronic Student ID Card form on MyMTC.  A copy of a government issued ID that includes a photo and a headshot meeting the specified criteria listed on the MyMTC Student Life page will also need to be uploaded to the electronic Student ID Card form.

All ID Cards are mailed to the address provided on the electronic Student ID Card form.  The initial ID card is free. Replacement cards are $5. The $5 fee should be paid at a MTC Cashier’s office.  The receipt for the replacement fee must be uploaded to the electronic Student ID Card form with the other required items.  

ID Cards are not processed during Late Registration, Priority Drop/Add, Schedule Change or when academic credit classes are not in session.


The Student Life Office publications include an online Student Handbook and the Student Clubs and Organization Guidelines Manual. These publications can be found at:

Social and Sports Activities

The Student Life Office seeks to foster interaction among the entire student body, faculty and staff by offering social and recreational activities. This interaction can increase the opportunities for success in college.

Student Advisory Board

Students have the opportunity to participate in student government through the Student Advisory Board (SAB). This governing board provides students a voice in college governance, campus concerns and student affairs. The Student Advisory Board is also the umbrella structure for all MTC student clubs and organizations. Representatives of each student organization sit on the SAB as voting members. Any student may attend Advisory Board meetings and voice concerns as a nonvoting member. The Student Advisory Board charters new student organizations, sponsors community service projects and supports Student Life programming. The Student Advisory Board President attends the MTC Commission meetings and serves as an advisor on student issues to the Vice President for Student Development Services. The Student Advisory Board also appoints students to college standing and ad hoc committees.

All Midlands Technical College students are automatically members-at large of the SAB and are encouraged to participate. The executive officers are selected in the spring. Contact the Student Life Office on either the Beltline or Airport campus for further information.
