Today, the City of Columbia issued an order instructing people to stay home, beginning this weekend. This will not impact our delivery of alternative instruction. Each day our faculty and staff are working to continuously enhance processes and services on behalf of our students. The volume of calls to the help desk and registrar’s office is decreasing, so we are confident that instructors and students are finding success. If that is not the case for you, please ask for help. We are here for you.

The Midlands Technical College Foundation scholarship application deadline has been extended to May 1. The Foundation offers more than 100 scholarships for new and continuing students. Apply one time to get matched to numerous opportunities.
