Training programs for students who don’t plan to pursue a degree

65 % of tomorrow’s careers require an education beyond high school, but less than a 4-year degree.

The jobs available for middle-skilled employees are outpacing the number of qualified workers, while high-skilled and low-skilled workers have too many workers and not enough available jobs. That means middle-skilled workers are and will be in high demand in South Carolina over the next ten years, and graduates with some career training will have an easier time finding a job.

Transfer programs for students who want to attend a 4-year college

Starting a degree at MTC can save thousands.

Students who complete their first two years here and then transfer can graduate with thousands less in student debt. And MTC transfer students actually perform better academically at 4 year schools than the students who started there. We have transfer programs and articulation agreements with most South Carolina colleges.
