A career development student is a student taking academic courses, but not entering a degree program. They may be taking courses for self-development or as a prerequisite to entering another college.
- If you are attending another college and are taking one or two classes at MTC, you are a visiting or transient student. Learn more about admissions requirements for visiting/transient students
- Career development students are not eligible to receive Federal Aid.
Prospective career development students must apply to the college and meet all placement and other prerequisites for the course in which they plan to enroll. Career Development students may meet course prerequisites by:
- Taking the placement test
- Using credits from previous course work at MTC that fulfill a prerequisite need
- Submitting college transcripts with college-level course work from another institution that fulfill a prerequisite need
- Obtaining departmental approval
Career development students must verify their lawful presence or immigration status. The appropriate documentation of status must be received before enrolling.
