Can you see yourself here? A visit to our campus is the best way to get a feel for the college while getting answers to your questions.
There are many ways to visit. You can take a tour during one of our weekly campus visit sessions, come to an open house or program-exploration event or bring a group.
Weekly campus visit sessions
At this one hour session you will take a tour of our beautiful downtown campus with one of our student leaders, hear about our outstanding degree, diploma and certificate programs, and discover the many student services and exciting student organizations and activities available. You will also learn about tuition, financial aid, and how to get started with the admission process at MCTC. Feel free to bring a friend or family member with you.
Once each semester, you can come to an open house and talk with professors and staff about programs, student services, campus organizations and more. Participants set up at tables in a common area so you can walk around and get the answers you need. You can also take a general campus tour. More information on our open houses can be found here.
