MTC is the Real Deal
At MTC, students get a real-world education that prepares them for the next big step. Many students start their college experience here, then transfer to a four-year institution for about half the cost. Countless others get on track to a great job with one of our many academic career or training programs.
3 PATHS TO HIGHER EDUCATION
TRANSFER PROGRAMS SHOW
- Our two-year Associate in Arts and Associate in Science degrees are ideal for students who want to transfer to a four-year college or university. Students can transfer from MTC with up to half of their bachelor’s degree requirements already completed. MTC is an accredited college – so credits are accepted at colleges and universities nationwide.
- MTC's Bridge Program provides opportunities for students to successfully transfer to selected four-year colleges and universities. Bridge students are linked to their transition colleges early in their coursework at MTC, and they are provided clear pathways and supportive activities, which enhances transfer success.
ACADEMIC CAREER PROGRAMS SHOW
- Our Academic Career Program graduates receive industry recognition that leads to employment. We offer a wide range of associate degrees, diplomas, and academic certificates in areas like Business; Computer and Information Technology; Education and Public Service; Engineering Technologies; Healthcare; and Industrial Technologies, Trades, and Manufacturing.
TRAINING PROGRAMS SHOW
- MTC Training Programs, also known as Corporate and Continuing Education (CCE), can be completed in weeks or months and lead to nationally recognized certifications and licensures. The Training Programs provide education for in-demand careers and for getting new skills in current careers. They are not for academic credit, and you don’t need to apply to the college to attend.
