Welcome to the fourth week of Fall Semester!

Something special for this Fall.
The Library and Academic Success Center will be open on the weekends this semester at MTC’s Airport and Beltline campuses. Saturday and Sunday hours are 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. 
 
Request your student ID – virtually.
If you need a student ID, you can email Student Life to request one and have it mailed to you. Learn how on the Student Life MyMTC page – look for the “Student ID Cards” section.

Looking for a job? 
Visit the Student Employment Services web page and search our part-time and full-time job boards. That page also has numerous career guidance and job search resources. You can contact Student Employment Services staff at 803.822.3538.
 
Fall semester doesn’t just start in August. 
Fall mini-mesters, which start later this month and in October, are still available. The last day to enroll in fall 10-week courses is tomorrow, September 17; and the last day to enroll in fall 7-week courses is October 14. Talk with your advisor for help getting the best schedule for you.
 
It’s not too early to think about Spring Semester.
Now is a great time to book your Spring advisement appointment and plan the best schedule and major for you.
 
Keep it up.
Please continue to wear your face coverings, practice social distancing, and refer to the ON-CAMPUS STUDENT PLAN and GUIDELINES. You are doing a great job!

Stay well!

We've been proactively putting precautions in place that include social distancing, disinfecting protocols, rearranging classrooms, and safety reminders. Here's a behind-the-scenes glimpse at what learning looks like now on the MTC campuses.

Please continue to familiarize yourself with the ON-CAMPUS STUDENT PLAN and GUIDELINES. Collectively, we all bear personal responsibilities to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Our goal is to keep you safe while preparing you for your next educational and career steps.
