Academic Fresh Start
Students readmitted to the college may apply for “Academic Fresh Start.” This option is designed for students who have performed poorly in their previous coursework at MTC and have decided to re-enroll after being out of college for at least three years. Students in this category who want an opportunity for a fresh undergraduate start at Midlands Technical College, without the penalty of their prior academic record, may apply for Academic Fresh Start, subject to the conditions set forth by the college. Granting of Academic Fresh Start can occur only once. Granting of Academic Fresh Start will not affect or alter a student’s access to financial aid or scholarships from any source unless specific governmental or agency laws and/or regulations prohibit such awards. All prior academic coursework is used to determine Title IV academic progress standards for financial aid and may be used by other colleges to determine transfer GPA. For information about this process, contact Counseling and Career Services. Counseling and Career Services is located in the Airport Student Center, room 237 (803.822.3505); and in the Beltline Student Center, room 239 (803.738.7636).
