Winter Courses

Our online winter courses are a great way to catch up, get ahead on your degree plan, or complete a prerequisite. 

Who can take online winter courses?

Any college student can take advantage of our Wintermester online winter courses. Registration and orientation will look a little different depending on what type of student you are. 

First-time students - Complete online orientation before you meet with an Academic and Career Advisor!

Current students - Book an appointment with your advisor and get ahead on the path to graduation. Or, if you already have the permissions, go ahead and register now.

Students from other colleges - If you are a student at another institution who wishes to take an online winter course at MTC, and you have not attended MTC in the past three semesters, you need to apply to the college. Then, you'll work one-on-one with our admissions team on getting enrolled in the class you need. 

Winter Semester FAQs

How many credits can I earn through an online course during the winter semester?

You can earn three or four credits through our online winter courses depending on which class you choose.

These courses pack a significant amount of material into a short time frame, so the time commitment is large. This is why we only allow students to take one online course during the winter. 

How do I transfer my credits to a different institution?

MTC has 80+ transferable courses that are guaranteed to transfer to other colleges and universities offered at MTC.

Do I need to be a resident of the Midlands to enroll?

Students are not required to live in the Midlands to enroll in online winter courses at MTC. However, we recommend that new students refrain from starting in the winter because of the workload and short time frame.

Wintermester courses begin Mid-December and end in the first week of January.
